335 OR 528

Well, I have a 2009 e90 328xi with 8,900 miles. I was thinking either a 2009 loaded 335xi coupe with 30k miles jet black with coral red interior and burl wood trim or a 2010 528xi black on black or a deep sea blue with beige and dark burl loaded except no sport package with 30,500 miles. The problem to me is that the 335 seems like more of a risk, while the 528xi looks safer and like more of a car. I would go for a 535 but finding a well optioned one with sports package seems to be ridiculously difficult for a reasonable price. Or should i just keep my 328xi with everything except nav, and instally an indash nav? I was looking at depreciating values and figured if my car loses another 4-5k value in another year no point in paying around 70 more a month for a 528xi. The 528xi would be around $30,500. The 335xi would be around 29,500. I'm regretting that I paid for extended cpo and wheel insurance =[. Trying to keep the best value for my money. What would you guys do? I feel like I would get in trouble with a 3 series because I really take advantage of it's handling capabilities I mostly drive local, and on weekends end up going to queens. The roads are garbage because I go through hempstead tpk everyday. So I know the 5 would be more comfortable and I'd still be able to throw some shoes on it. The 335 isn't cpo though =[

You could buy my CP0 2008 535i Alpine White with Sports/Cold Weather/Premium/Nav pkgs for $21,500 (negotiable).

Car has 62,000 miles, in excellent condition and has balance of CPO warranty for another 38,000 miles or December 2014. Let me know

That is a really good offer but I'm interested in a 2010 because of the idrive update. I'll let my friend know though because he's looking for a 5 series as well.

Keep your existing car and install an iPad Mini, Nexus 7 or the like as a nav/infotainment system. Way cheaper, and way more features/usability.

You only have 9k miles on your '09? Barely broken in.

Also, I don't get these kinds of posts. Should I get a 335 or 528. Totally different cars. What are you looking for a good financial deal or just to drive a BMW?

I'm looking for a good financial deal while upgrading at the same time. But i'm worried about the expenses of the 35 engines. So I'm asking which is more of a car?
