I'm sorry but anyone that buys a 328 and then decides to throw this package on it is missing the point of owning the 328. Getting one of these is like taking steroids. You look very striking but as soon as a girl dives into your drawers its hello Mr. Tiny Pecker.

A 328xi with m sport, for a cpl of K more or maybe the same depending on how nice the dealer is..you could of had a very nice 335 and skipped all the future "what intake is best", "What is better AA tune or pbx?" , and the famous "How do you do a muffler delete" questions that we find ourselves overwhelmed with on this board lol

And if you step up to the 335 you can expect to have to have decreasing performance and have to clean your intake valves in 40,000 miles, worry and deal with HPFP problems, lower gas mileage, higher insurance premiums, all for only 5% of your driving experience when you are really into the boost. Get the 328 and take a driving school class and you'll be very happy.

So true. Lease em, beat on em, return em. Worthless and expensive for the long term. The N54 was a big mistake based on greed and horribly misguided design. Too bad.

Yeah I would only lease a N54.

The N52 + 6MT is a keeper.

Yet you own a 328. There is more to life. Your line may end, but mine goes on.

I have never seen a forum that craps so much on someone because they bought a car without turbos. I'm starting to wonder if this board is full of kids.

Don't get me wrong, I'm just like most other car guys...if someone offered me an 335i or an M3 e90 I would drive it. But I'm more than happy with the car I have, and personally, I think that the BMW Performance exhaust sounds better on the NA engine. IMO, it sounds too "ricey" on the twin turbo/twinpower engine.

+1, who cares if a car is a 328i, 335i, or whatever. It's a BMW enthusiast forum. No need to insult someone because they didn't buy the exact same car you bought. Annoying.

It's too bad that's how it is on forums, and it gets stupid, old and boring.


OP, The M-Sport (especially on a coupe) looks nice. And you get a lot of great little extras with it. The steering wheel alone is so much nicer than the regular sport wheel... and the black headliner, and nicer shifter.

If you're going for having a nice looking car, as well as a car that has enough snot to not get rear ended when you pull into traffic, 328 with M-sport is a great choice.

For the extra money over the sport package (on a sedan/touring) the M Sport package is worth every penny, imo. The steering wheel is fantastic. If you get a manual tranny the short-throw shifter is great. After owning a ZHP I absolutely love the anthracite/black headliner. Note - one should not get plain beige or grey interior with the M Sport; you lose the effect. Upgrade to the 18" M Sport wheels and along with the other trim enhancements you have one heck of a good looking car.

The M Sport package is the only thing that makes me wish for a new N55 335i over my absolutely wonderful N52 330i. I miss the interior (and all that makes a ZHP a ZHP) of my ZHP (did I say ZHP enough in this sentence ); Natural Brown leather with the anthracite headliner and my Imola Red paint.
