Additional points in favor of 135i:

+tech: you'll get the latest iDrive, HDD based nav, iPod integration, phone integration, comfort access. Despite some minor grips with these features, I think BMW has some of the best and deepest tech around.

+specification: you'll be able to spec exactly as you want - color, options, etc. (You can use this to help sell your wife if you need to, i.e., let her pick the color.)

+euro delivery: you can enjoy a discount, a nice vaca in Europe, and the ED experience.

+smell: somehow you can't get that new car smell in a bottle, it takes a new car!

Both great cars. As others mention, maintenance should be a lot less on the Bimmer.
