Im selling the Maxima and getting a new 323. The Maxima is a better "value" car and very dependable, but I wanted something more fun to drive. The only thing that bugs me is losing the extra horsepower -- people dont realize how quick the 5spd maxima is.
Interior, I would give the edge to the Maxima with leather....exterior I like the 3 series MUCH more and hadling and driving experience is no comparison at all. Even a loaded SE is too soft on the corners.
: Do you like your Maxima more than the bimmer?
: I was thinking about a fully loaded SE but decided on the 323i instead.
: : Since no one answered the question, I would have to say the difference to me was very minor under almost all driving conditions. I got the premium package instead of the sport.....but then again, Im driving a Maxima SE right now and both 323 packages are a pleasant surprise.
: : I may be missign something though cause most on this bulliten board seem to notice every detail about handling etc,,,or maybe its psychological.
