I think you should consider the E46 323 because in the long run you would feel better. Let me try to explain. If you get the 97' 328, "yes" you would have a bigger engine but do you always need that extra HP?? If not, you should get the new one. The E46 323 Body Shape just came out & it will be in style for awhile (7 years??) If you get the old body shape. You might regret?? Spending $5K more is not a big deal if your car is still in style!!!
