Should i sell it or no?

I bought my 2010 328i xdrive which had 40000km a year ago. I got it for $22k. So recently someone offered 20-21k for it, and now it has 58000km... and in my province, cars usually have a higher price than other provinces.

I don't know if i want to sell it because i just did maintenance at the dealership for $300, bought new pads and stainless steel brake lines for 450 (but i still haven't installed it), euro intake, and some other carbon fibre parts.

I would like to upgrade to a 335i xdrive, but i haven't found any at a reasonable price... i'm also scared of getting one because I've heard there's some pretty major common issues for the N54.

NEED advice whether i should sell it

Take into account the taxes you paid on the purchase, not sure how use tax compares in Canada, but that would be an additional ~$2k hit on the 1 year cost in the states.

That said, if you are going to modify the car, you will never get the 328 near the 335 performance for what it would cost you to swap now.

That mileage increase while only losing a grand in value isn't that bad. But if you want to mod you kind of have no choice than to move to a 335.

I'd sell mine now, and hop into an e92 M3, if someone made me an offer like that. Thats a pretty good deal.

If you like wallet pain and speed get the 335.......I you like a little less wallet pain keep the 328.

If you are buying an older 335 with more then 50K miles, plan on setting aside a good thousand or more aside for maintenance and repairs. The car is great but it needs attention with higher mileage and common wear and failure points including but not limited too:

Spark plugs
Coil Packs
Injectors
Vanos Solenoids
Water Pump
Valve Cover & Gasket
Oil Filter Gasket Leak

To name a few. Some owners may have taken care of some of these things but the average Joe usually doesn't.
