That was definitely a component in my decision to get a 335i. Also, with the options I wanted, the price difference wasn't much.
Another significant factor in my purchase was the e90. The performance gap was too large between 328 and 335 and I would never have considered the 328 when I purchased my e90. I was always annoyed when my service loaner was a 328, it just didn't have the performance I liked so I was inclined to look at the 335 again when I was replacing my poor totaled e90, even though the 328 was much closer in performance than the previous generation.
