I'm not sure what the 335i has to with a 328i/328ix comparison, and I didn't say "cheaper".
Yes, I'm not a teenager anymore, and not aiming to race at Indy, but aim for a responsive, good-looking, sure-footed, comfortable car with the latest gimmicks and very good gas mileage, and so far the 328ix looks like the best thing out there.
I'd guess if you have a 335i, you're looking for something else - much faster, a little less traction in bad weather, and worse gas mileage.
