The the automatic transmission the 335i is listed with a 0-60 of 5.1 seconds compared to 5.5 seconds for the X3 35i so really not a lot of difference in straight acceleration, but the 335i will handle better and be more fun to drive. Really depends on your needs. I have 5 months of snowing winter and a trailer I need to tow so the X3 was the perfect choice. If I lived somewhere warmer I probably would probably go with the 335i, but I have been really happy with the X3.
