Standard features differences for 2013 328i vs 335i?

So I poured over this bmw features pdf to see what the differences are.

It looks like with the 335i, in addition to the I6 turbo, you get:
-Xenons
-Moonroof
-18" wheels
edit:
-exhaust
-alarm
-wood trim
-premium and lines are cheaper on the 335i

Did I miss anything?

Also, does anyone know if the manufacturer of the transmission is the same for both the 328i and the 335i this time around? If I recall correctly, E90 328i had a GM tranny...

Thanks.

AFAIK, they both get the auto 8HP by ZF. I don't know where the MT comes from.

If the 328i is compared to an equal line 335i, then also add larger rotors and different calipers that come standard on the 335i.
Performance wise, the larger rotors and multi piston calipers should allow for more even brake wear over time, and allow more fade resistance.
You likely won't encounter fade problems with the 328i brakes unless you track the car. There may be some fade issues in comparison if you drive on very hilly terrain where you use the brakes for longer duration.
The brakes on either model work very well over all.

Yes, both versions use the same ZF 8spd AT.

328 sounds like a tonka toy truck and the 335 sounds like a mean puma on steroids.. Rawr.. ( not to mention separate tips on both sides of the car instead of just to the left)

I see another difference - premium on the 328i is $3100 and it's $2200 on the 335i. Modern is $2100 on the 328i and $1400 on the 335i...

35i X1 has the old 6-speed AT from the E90. 28i has the newer 8-speed. [sorry folks; wrong forum! My bad.]

This is not right (see above) at least for the US market. There is no MT. [See above. Brain explosion -- thought I was reading in the X1 forum.]

LOL! Wouldn't it be better for you to ask me how to initiate launch control than to jump out and say that you are pretty sure that it doesn't!!!!! I have used it a few times

6MT is offered on the 328 and 335, including xdrive models.

Then why was I unable to get 6MT on a 328i xDrive? Not even the configurator allows you to get the 6MT with xDrive. Let's check the actual facts before posting that someone else's are incorrect.
