The M3 does have much more power (years also vary in hp) You should see what type of options have come with this used M3. Also take into account what type of options you want to get for your 323 it can get even more expensive. If you think long term.. the E46 body style will please for years to come while the old E36 will be nothing but the old bimmer. You have to say the E46 body style is slick! The 323 has 168hp but it feels like 200hp enough for me to beat out an SH prelude with 200hp but does not have as much hp as the m3 of course. For good looks, decent hp, great features get the 323 for raw power and have an M3 emblem on your car take the m3.
