I made the first reply before I looked at the rest of the pics (I just looked at the first) and I have to say that while BMW has raised the base from $26,970 to $27,560, I feel that the car you get now is worth much more than the previous E46 323i. I think the combonation of the 2000 changes (Auto Air Recirc., DSC, Full Maintanence, standard alloys) plus the Sept. production changes (New key dsign, new alloy wheels (Did I mention how much I like the new wheels?) and several other things) I think BMW has improved the car imensly. When I got my 323i I saw a couple of base models at the dealer, and I thought they were terrible, but I feel your car is beautiful! Be proud of yourself! Not many people can even afford a Base BMW! You have a great vehicle, and it is very nice!
I think BMW has just guaranteed themselves even more sales of the base car for this year with these welcomes additions! Many more people now can get a great looking, great performing car without having to surpass the big $30k. I feel for $28k, you got an amazing deal. Add in the Jon Shafer internet special $2k over on sedans, and you can get a great deal!
