going back to a 335i

Hard decision but would rather have a little bit lesser car as my wife and I just purchased a house. I have a 2010 E90 sedan with the m performance exhaust. Has 24,000 miles and includes the 6 year 100,000 maintenance and warranty. Car has some curb rash on the wheels (Not to much it was from the original owner) Car is loaded and the only options missing are the cold weather and rear parking sensors. Just wondering how much do you think this is worth??

I'm sure you can get more cash by selling the performance exhaust separately, considering it's a $3k exhaust and all...

agreed, my estimate assume stock exhaust. That perf. exhaust is a good 3k

I came from a 335 N54 engine. Loved the car and engine. I do miss the high torque at the low end, great for traffic. I have talked to a few people with the new F30, they say the ride feels bigger than the E90. Like driving a "boat", but that is a personal preference just like the N54 twin turbo vs the N55 single turbo. There are alot more options for mods for the N54 than 55 if you want to go that route. I never understood it til I drove my M3 for a while but this statement is true, the 335 is more luxurious while the M3 is more raw and planted to the streets.

I miss my 335i at times, especially when I visit Shell twice as much now

335i are great daily drivers and lots of bang for the buck with a few mods.

TL Type S is a great car as well but won't have the power of a 335 or M. But of course you could always boost it

True, but after everything is said and done I contact one dealership on one I would be up about 21K, could be nice to use that towards my new house.

Personally, I don't like the Acuras. The Evo and the 335 are the two I'd consider from that list. They're very different, so it just comes down to which you'd rather have: Raw speed or comfort?
