Which of these two 435i should I buy?

I am looking to buy my first BMW. I am stuck between:

- 435i Gran Coupe in Alpine White with red interior
- 435i Coupe Alpine White with black interior and the M Sport package

They both have roughly the same amount of mileage and are roughly same price.

Let me know what you guys think I should do.

I think the Gran coupe will have better resale value, looks are preference. Me personally I love the Gran coupe!

White w/black interior looks very sharp. To me, red interior is more of a novelty that I would eventually tire of and come to regret my choice.

I own a 230i, but drove a Gran Coupe across East Texas in February. It is a great vehicle and I enjoyed it tremendously. That said, I prefer a coupe and would prefer that.

It really is personal preference

The Coupe with M sports no questions.
You buy the car for you, not the next owner, forget about the resell value.
Enjoy!

If you're planning on keeping the car a while then the service history should be a factor.

Gran coupes are only a little bit more expensive than coupes where I live, it didn't make much difference, I picked the F32, if you don't need 4 doors, why get it and never use it? I'd only consider gran coupe if I had to drive kids around, thats what the car was designed for in the first place, so dads can still have coupes.

If it isn't M-Sport then it ain't worth it. At least when it comes to the F3X's in my opinion.

I don't think we can answer this for you. You need to decide what you want. What options are important to you. I wanted and bought a 435i Gran Coupe because I wanted the 3.0 L turbo, 4 doors and a hatch. I also wanted and got the entire M-Sport package, convenience package and tech package and 19" wheels. I wouldn't choose either because they are both white.

M package all the way. Not getting the M package is my biggest regret after buying my F30.

If you want your crew to get in your car then get f36 - if you have coupe only your girl will ride. Coming from experience! Lol

Always had to jump in my friends Jetta cause had a coupe. You don't want to come out of a Jetta when you wanna represent

It seems you don't have a strong preference on body style. Same color, same mileage, same price, but one has M Package. Seems like a no brainier.

That is unless the M Package leads to reliability issues, but I'm not that well-versed.
