I am not getting the point of this IMHO......
in my country, malaysia where we have ridiculous taxes. the difference between a 328i and a 335i is almost US$ 60k. getting a piggyback or some fancy exhaust (heck you can even play around with superchargers) is much much cheaper than getting going up a notch for a 335i.
