Checking everything in the 335i puts the MSRP at $58,720.
NO thank you.

Since you're willing to spend $70K, then why not just get the 5?
Here's what you can get for right under $65,000
535i w/sport auto trans
M sport pkg.
Tech/Nav
Heads up display
Heated seats
-Pretty loaded and it looks sweet with the M-sport pkg.
And, the Nav is nicely integrated into the dash.

For about $70K you can get the 550i M sport, V8 turbo, sweet.
My F30 costs > 70k EUROS....

A F10 5 series is not 'BMW'sporty at all. That's one of the reasons why I traded in my 2010(in US 2011....) 535i for the F30 335i 6MT.

German carmag Autobild tested a 328i AT vs a Audi A4 2.0TFSi(211BHP)6MT, the BMW won, but not very easily. They weren't very happy with the sound of the 328i. The Audi engine sounded better and had a shorter braking distance.
The BMW was faster with 0-100kmh(62mph) in 6.2 seconds.What's the fuzz?
Overall a very very good car, but so is the Audi they stated.
