Which ones better 323 325 or 328?

I originally owned a 97 318is and loved it but it got totaled. I installed a ksport coilover suspension and it was fantastic so I'll be putting it on the next e36 I get. I'm relatively new to BMWs. I want to get a 6 cylinder. I'm not really a racer but I like going fast. I'm kind of mechanically inclined but I do have the service manual that was posted. I've never done anything more complicated than the suspension. I found 2 98 323is ($5500) that look like they're in mint condition a 96 328is ($6000) and 92 325is and a 93 325is (Both $3800) with an LSD. I was just wondering what you guys thought was my best bet for less maintence, the best value and which one you would get? I plan on doing mostly cosmetic changes (wheels, lights, rear lip, front lip and maybe an LSD)

I'm not sure but I think it was only the 92-93 is's and only some of them came with them. I could be wrong but that's what i've read on the forum.

edit:
My 97 didn't have LSD but it had tractoin control.

on 325's its the winter package ones that have LSD's. It's not like the e30's where the 325is' had the lsd's.

I would say the 93 325is cause it's still OBDI, has Vanos, and is probably easier and cheaper to mod. Throw in and Lsd and boom fun little car.

Thanks for the response man. Your the first person to give me an opinion. I was defintely thinking the 93 325is cause it seems like good price. The guy said it already had the Mtech suspension on it too but i guess that doesnt really matter since i have my coilovers. I've ruled out the 328is just because i have passengers in my car all the time but the others I'm still considering. Going on a long road trip today to look at all but the 328 instead im checking out a 323is but with only 81k on it Black with grey leather (my favorite combo).

Ya depending on what you are looking for, the 323 might be a better choice.
If you're not gonna mod it up a whole lot and just want a daily driver the 323 would probably have less miles and is obviously newer.

stock
1998 323is = 170hp/ 170 tq
1993 325is = 189hp/181 tq
