I ordered a 323i last week & went with premium. While the cornering & ride are definately better w/ the sport, I decided against it because I was concered about the reduced clearance (I'll take it skiing,etc.) liked the 4 spoke steering wheel better & didn't want to deal with trading those god-awful v-spokes. I have read the archives about revising to sport suspension later & have a couple quesions:
what is the cost? Does it lower the car? Short of swapping out all springs/sway bars & shocks, what is the latest thinking on the preferred while cost effective way to firm-up the existing standard suspension w/o lowering it?
This site has been extremely useful in steering the decision to get a 323i. Thanks in advance for the help!
