There is a price difference that seems hard to justify, but for me it came down to this: Every car up till this one I've ever bought was an entry level model within its class (for Example a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo instead of the Limited, also a Passat GLS instead of the GLX.)

In each case it didn't take long before I mentally kicked myself for not spending the few extra dollars to get the top of the line instead of being frugal and feeling like I didn't that extra stuff the other cars had. When you factor in the extra 5 to 6K over the financing of the car it becomes pretty neglible in the long-term.

The big differences to me in the 323 vs 328 decision was:
1) The Premium package on the 328 comes with the wood interior, the 323 doesn't.
2) 328 came with vanity lights for the visors (seems like a small deal but important for the wife and her makeup applications from the passenger seat)
3) 328 is almost a second faster in 0-60 times, which gives it a better seat of the butt feel.
4) On board computer is standard in the 328
