    328i vs 328xi

    thinking of trading my e46 in for either a 328i or 328xi. Anyone know what the difference is in handling and feel with the extra metal churning up front? I know there will be a performance hit but not sure how much. Might trade my 4x4 in at the same time and if the xi is about same driving wise I might up the options or go with the 335xi

    thanks

    Slower, but handles much the same

    There is little difference in the handling - the xi is a little more neutral because there is less power oversteer. And because you don't get staggared wheels, the tendancies towards understeer are less.

    It's slower, and about 1 mpg less mileage.

    But if you really want to handle in the snow, snow tires are the cheapest way to go and less expensive.
