: 1) The Premium package on the 328 comes with the wood interior, the 323 doesn't.
I know that the premium package is $2900 for the 328i, so technically, the wood is not standard on the base car. The sport nor the premium 323i give you wood, leather, or moonroof. So getting the premium 323i seems like a bad investment and the sport seems more logical with better upgrades such as sport seats, sport suspension, 3-spoke SW, and wider tires.
: 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)
Since I have no wife and I am single, this vanity light, may not benefit me like you.
: 3) 328 is almost a second faster in 0-60 times, which gives it a better seat of the butt feel.
I have read that the manual 323i does 0-60 in 7.1 seconds versus the manual 328i which does it in 6.6 seconds (manufacturers data by BMW) which makes this performance difference less than a second.
: 4) On board computer is standard in the 328
I think the new E46 OBC only has 4 functions now, none of which I really care for.
Do you still think I would be happier with the 328i considering all the comments I just made?
