You have a point about the 328 vs. 330 decision. I wonder if the arrival of the 335 was publicized/leaked in advance so that potential buyers at least had the option to wait? If the M3 was going to get DFI mid-cycle (unlikely), I would think the best way to handle it might be to leak some info about it so that the enthusiasts get a chance to think things through...
