Similarly equipped, it's $4350 more.
I don't need the 335i though. Wouldn't mind one, but don't need it.

I pretty much know exactly what I'll owe before I even start.
I have never owed. I wind up getting a good refund every year. Everyone I work with is the same way, save a few guys who have jumped tax brackets due to having second jobs.
I know the minimum I'll get, but I don't know what I'll get from the refi and the other car purchase. That's where the uncertainty is. I don't know the first thing about doing taxes since I have a tax lady for that. I always wind up paying out a lot more in taxes throughout the year, and every tax season is like Christmas for us (myself and my coworkers).
I can get the car whenever I want, but a better return means I can get it with a lot lower payment. I want a lower payment, and I'd prefer to not have to wait until summer to get the same payment. My current 2003 Mazda beater car that I intentionally drove into the ground is on it's last leg, and I'm not sure it'll hold out until summer. There are squeaks, rattles and grinding noises that I can't identify, and the car is rusting out at 170k salt-pounded miles.
