Hi Hans --

What specifically is different between the two transmissions (other than the slight gearing differences)?

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

: : Sorry, I couldn't find the original message down below that was talking about the tranny differences.

: : On alt.autos.bmw, bongo (any of you know him :-) posted this:

: : > 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?
