Two cars, same engine, one is lighter, easy choice for me. What worst is, 335 in Toronto, is like a European "Civic". Yes, there are that many on the streets.
I was exactly in the same position G37, 135, 335 , STI, EVO the 135 10K cheaper than the 335(so it helps). I still think that my cars ugly but I paid than grand less and I got brembo brakes and a more nimble car. I had the $ to buy the 335I but it wasnt worth it since I dont keep my cars for a long time and too many 335s around. I was dead set to buy a 335 before the 1er came out btw life made it different.
