In Reply to: How many of you actually bought a 328 without the posted by Sport package?? on February 15, 1999 at 09:09:25:
I did. Initially, I wanted the sport package, but there was a beautiful new Fern Green 328i on my dealer's lot with premium package (no sport).
"Hmmm? Drive home from the dealer in a 328 premium or wait 2 months for 328 sport + premium?"
I couldn't wait. I purchased the 328i premium and drove it home that day. It drives pretty damn well without the sports package. Plus I thought the stiffness of the sport suspension would start to bother me after a while since I wanted a sporty sedan, not a sports car, for my daily driver. Believe me, the premium 328 is "sport" by most peoples definition.
Nonetheless, the sport package on the 328 is a hell of a deal--bigger wheels, tires, suspension elements, and incredible seats for not that much money.
Oh well, someday I will have a daily driver and a sports car. Look out M Roadster!
By the way, just wait until you get 1500 miles on your 328. Holy sh*t, what a rocket!
