Honestly, I love my E90... but if all the options that the TL comes with are important to you and you plan on buying it and keeping it for a while, I'd be extremely tempted by the TL.

I like the look and style of the TL but the residual for a lease was 42% vs. 63% for the E90... so even though the MSRP is about the same the lease cost was much higher for the TL. The 325i in Canada also happens to come equipped with everything I wanted, so many things the TL comes with (i.e. sunroof, CD changer, automatic) I didn't care about or want to be "paying for" even though they come standard. The bluetooth on the TL is awesome though, and I love the interior.

It will never have the "driver's car" appeal and character of a BMW though...
