I'm getting tired of those gibberish discussions (my 3s vs yours 3s) that started all the flame wars and wasted the bandwidth. Grow up! So what if someone drives a 323 or a 328? They are still BMWs and they are both fun to drive and maybe the persons with the 323s have better place to spend the extra $5k. And there is nothing wrong with adding stuffs (chip, etc.) to the 323s. It's called car enthusiast. So stop putting down other people because of what they drive and the BMW does not make you a better person than the one who is in the next lane in an old beatup car.
And last time I checked, this board was for questions and answers about the E46, not specifically 323 or 328! I enjoy this board because of relevant info on the E46 NOT "my 328 is better than your 323."
Peace and have a Happy Thanksgiving
