If I were buying a car to drive low miles I would be much more concerned with depreciation than fuel economy.

M3/5/6 would be a better long term investment. Naturally aspriated V8 or v10 would liven up a weekend for me..

I like my E92 335i very much and as an everyday car it's better than my old M3 CS in a number of respects (much better economy for similar straight line performance, more refined on a long run, etc). However, for a blast on a challenging road it's not as engaging or involving to drive and doesn't feel anything like as special. Don't get me wrong, the 335i does a great job for me and is well suited to my current requirements; however, an M-car it isn't and if I was doing less than 10k miles a year I'd have an E92 M3.
