Ok i was thinking about buying a second car (a 2000 323ci) manual. I was to make it into a project car. Anyone know how much money i would have to spend to make it as fast as a manual 330ci? What seems like the best mod to do to get some power. BTW i already got a 330ci lol so dont say just get a 330ci. I saw a 323ci for 18k and it had 25k miles, sport package, heated seats, premuim package. Sounds to good to be true but he's in a rush to sell it. BTW its silver which i think is sweet. I got white and i wouldn't want another one it would be silly.

Well for 6k (which is less than the difference in price between the two cars should) you would far surpass the power of the 330 with an SC.

the cars are so similar, i fail to see the difference in buying a slightly older, slower car and making it a project. u should get a 95 M3, which will beat your 330 stock, and then put a turbo or SC into it if u are really interested in some power, and the 330 could remain your new, daily driver :thumbup:

just my two cents

i still dont see the point of getting basically the same car u have now and beefing that up. if u have the kind of cash to do that, might as well trade the 330 in for a new M, and get a beater for phucking around with in the winter or whatever
