In Reply to: why buy a 323 loaded w sport? buy 328 or m-3... posted by DJC on November 10, 1998 at 19:31:52:
: wh buy a 323 when the resale of a 328 or m is so much higher?
I don't plan on selling this car for a really
long time - resale value is not a factor.
Why would you need a sport suspension when there is no power?
Well, you're exagerating here, of course. There
is power, albeit not as much as the 328 - but
there's plenty there (0-60 in 7.1 seconds is
nothing to sneeze at).
Even if the engine was wimpy, I'd still want
the suspension upgrade: my daily commute is
through the twisty hills of Santa Cruz. With
your argument, a wimpy VW GTI shouldn't bother
with great suspension because it's underpowered.
But moreover, I want the sport package
for several reasons: sport seats, foglights,
3 spoke steering wheel, 16in wheels/tires.
Finally, why would anyone want the M aero package on a 328?
I somewhat agree - I don't care for the add-on
wing. But I do like the side skirts an the front
spoiler mods (round foglight openings).
Reminds me of a wanna be....and once again....the resale will not recoupe price of aero. Any thoughts?
Again, some of us keep our cars for a really
long time, we buy what we want, not just because
we can partially recover the expense when we sell
