keep e90 335i or get F30 328 xdrive?

my lease is about to end on 2009 e90 335i MSport RWD, love the car, great condition, about 56k on it. I was planning to just buy it out and keep driving for another 4-5 years (the only issues I had is amount of snow we get in Edmonton)
but now I am thinking perhaps I should get F30 328 xdrive

anyone else had to deal with same situation? what did you ended up doing? any good deals on 328 recently

Currently the lease rate is 3.9%

Residual on a 48 month lease as follows:
50% - 20k km per year
51% - 16k km per year
52% - 12k km per year

There is also a $2000 incentive towards options, $500 of that comes from the dealer and $1500 comes from BMW.

I traded in my 2008 335xi for a 2013 335 xdrive in September. I loved my 2008 335xi and it only had 44,000 km when I traded it in. My major reason for the change was for the worry free and hassle free nature of having full warranty and free maintenance with the new car. My dealer gave me a great trade in so I decided to make the move. 4,000 km later I am happy with the new car, my major issue I have with the F30 is I am not sure if I should have traded my 6 speed manual for the 8 speed automatic.

I was in a similar situation to yours. The lease on my 09 328i xDrive was ending and overall I was extremely happy with that car after 4 years and about 50,000km. I briefly pondered keeping it, but instead decided to get an F30 328i xDrive and have been really happy with it so far. It's got a different feel to it than the E90, but in my opinion is a nice improvement in all aspects.
