328i 2008 coupe or 2009 sedan?

Which would you prefer?

Also, what option would you absolutely not live without on a preowned 328?

I am looking for sport, premium, Xenon on sedan, what other option should I require?

Found an inexpensive montego blue sedan with M-sport and premium but no Xenon....I want to keep this car for 5 years so am not going for it.... why would someone leave hid lighting off of a car like that?

You can always get a Xenon conversion done. The 2009+ LCI sedans look soo nice! Especially with Montego blue, it seems like its a pretty rare colour here.

If I were you, I would go with an LCI sedan, just because I find it a bit more practical and I just prefer sedans overall.

Different people may have different opinions

Why is the M-sport so desirable over the regular sport package? It doesn't look dramatically different in the pictures.

Also, where I live there are so many more sedans than coupes....

I do love the look of the lci sedan though....

M package you get the M bodykit which makes a big difference

2009 Sedan. It's a newer car, you get the updated iDrive (If you go for that option), and it's an LCI updated model.

For sure get:
Sport
Premium
Xenon

Then you can go from there:
M-Sport
Nav
Comfort Access

Wow...surprising answers so far.

Cool things about coupes:

always Xenon lights
great 18 inch wheels on sports
almost every coupe I find has logic 7 audio

I do love the stying of the new sedan. About the lights..you can't retrofit Xenon lights without using capacitors or having dash lights on can you?

I found another montego blue m-sport without Xenon's...I just can't do without them.

I don't think I'm getting i-drive....too rare to find it with all of my other requirements in a reasonably priced package.

What if I get a 2009 coupe instead? then coupe or sedan?

For me Logic 7 makes a big difference. My previous BMW had the base system, and I now have L7, it makes such a difference when driving the car, listening to tunes.

Bring your favorite CD when test driving, and compare the difference for yourself.

Get the 09 Sedan. I was in your same position and I'm so glad I got the sedan. The facelift makes such a huge difference. The coupe didn't get the facelift until 2010.

Logic 7 is amazing if you can find it. Like AlanAZ, my previous BMW also only had the base. The upgraded sound system is pretty good.

Xenons were a requirement when buying my car. I found one with them. It makes such a huge difference.

I am definitely not getting a car with base sound..has to be at least hi-fi but am trying to track down logic 7.

I found another blue M-sport, this one seemed to have everything then I realized it was missing Premium! who would get L7, xenon, M-sport and leave off premium?

I believe the M-Sport comes with LeMans Blue. Dont think the Montego blue was offered with M-Sport.
