Yes 323's transmission is considered to be inferior in Germany, it's not as smooth and is only used on the cheap cars.

: > The 323's manual is made by Getrag.
: > The 328's manual is made by ZF, the finest transmission OEM in the world

: Any comments on this? Are they really different designs
: in addition to different makers?
