Usually, it stands loosely as sport, for the lightly sport upgraded model of that car.

Not true exactly. In this case the S denotes a coupe. The 323i is a sedan or convertible. Those that came with "sport packages" had 16in bbs basket weaves or double spoke "sport" wheels, "sport" seats, "sport" shocks and springs, and if I'm not mistaken an m steering wheel as well. The regular 323is came with 15in radial wheels. I know this because I owned one. =]

Thanks, I had pretty much figured out that the 's' meant coupe, although honestly that makes no sense to me. And Bill "da bull", thanks for the welcome but other than that, I have no idea what the hell you are talking about. I'm guessing, with the binary code reference, it's some kind of computer nerd smack/trash talk.

not really, we were just talking about the known problems of the E36 chassis BMW's, they are notorious for being a more flimsy chassis and have problems with breaking interior pieces...no binary I337 speek here

Welcome Joe!

Kyle, love that momo steering wheel, looks awesome. I was referring to Bill da bull writing about taking the keys to my car and only 10 kinds of people in the world, those that understand binary and those that don't. Huh??????? Bye the way, sure hope I don't run into half the problems w/ my car as were discussed here. So far I love it, and I think it feels really tight and handles unbelievable for the compromise between sports and luxury car that it is. But then again, I haven't owned a sports car in over 20 yrs., been driving pick-ups and a jeep.
