The 328i is more performance oriented than the 323i, and i also do not like the added clutter and weight of extra body parts. I'm fine with a more subtle body effects kit that would be a factory option, but unfortunately thatis no longer offered for now, and I probably would not see the extra money for it to be worth getting anyway...
: Get the 328i with sport package. If you care anything about handling and grip this is the way to go. If you are more concerned about looks then get a 323 and waste your money (IMHO) on the aero kits. Personally I think those things add uneccesary weight and clutter up the lines of the car
: : My parents will soon buy me a E46 BMW either the 99 or 00 model. I need some feedback on whether to buy a 323 or a 328. If I get a 323 the money I save will most likely be going into a Hamann Aerodynamics kit and Hamann rims 17". Or should I just go for the 328 and work my way up. I was also wondering how the E46 would stack up against the car I currently drive now 98 Accord Coupe V6 ex, handling/speed wise. What dealerships are good in Southern Kali??
: : Thanks...
