Only thing I can think of outside of the money factor for getting a 328 over a 335:

- Better fuel economy (get a Prius if you're green or a Kia if you're broke)
- Better weight distribution (very slim difference noticeable in racing only)
This sentiment just oooooooozes snobbery.

What you're saying in other words:

"It's stupid to spend 1.3k to upgrade the sound on your 328i, because for another 4k you could have gotten a 335i. And if that additional 4k actually matters to you, well then you're just a broke person who's reasoning I don't understand".

A) I've heard a 328i with performance exhaust, and a 335 with stock. Personally prefer the 328 with perf exhaust at higher revs. So no, just upgrading to a 335 would not be the same as installing the performance exhaust on a 328.

B) For a lot of us here that additional 4k is a size-able chunk of money. Does that mean we're broke or poorer than you or whatever? No, it just means we have different priorities.
