Aloha -

I'm in the market for a car after being out of the States for several years, and have a line on an under-used (now unused) 1995 Alpine White 325i with 30K miles. I'll get it for blue book, which I'm sure is better by about $4K than I would get via a dealer. I'm not excited about white, but thinking of the other things I can do with the $10K I'll save is exciting enough.

But there's the new 323i as well, and I can probably wait the insane factory lead times I've been quoted (four months in the Bay Area???).

What I'm having difficulty with is finding out which additions and features in the 323i, other than the engine, have been released SINCE the '95 325i. I recall that 95 was a big overhaul year too, but exactly what am I going to be missing out on if I go used instead of new?

Your advice please!

- Andrew
