Put it like this, a new 335i with options over here in the UK is 40k ($80k) trade price on a year old one with 12k miles on it at the moment is around 25k ($50k).
Discount on a new 2009 model is around 6% at the moment so you would get it for say 37k, so cost to change for an 09 model is around $24,000.

Adding the new iDrive for a grand or two really doesn't seem so bad to me.

Gizze, what do you reckon on figuring out if it will be possible to do a retrofit upgrade of the current IDrive system to the new hard-drive version? I agree that the coding shouldn't be as much of a problem as it's made out to be, especially with an Autologic or a full-blown GT1 software running on a laptop
