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 drove a 328i without the Sport package in Germany last summer, and decided right then that I wouldn't want the car if it didn't come with a firmer suspension.
Drove the 328i in the US without the Sport package a little later, and this just confirmed my opinion: I wouldn't want the 328i with the stock suspension tuning. Too soft. I'd get something else instead.
Yeah, the bigger wheels and sports seats are nice additions (very nice, in fact, and I'm very glad I'm getting them!), but it is the stiffer suspension that I couldn't live without.
This is not a flame, of course, it's just my opinion. Granted, I'm a bit of an extremist. But if someone steals your non-sport 328i, it wasn't me. :)
