As great as the sports package is, I think I would probably go with the black coupe. It sounds like it is in better condition.

You should run both VINs through carfax before making your decision. If you post them here, I am sure someone can run the carfaxes for you, for free.

hehe I dunno why I said that, but i am more in love with the black Bimmers than white ones =P Plus PP usually means xenons

If you dont care about the color, then i would probably get the white car, and then grab an E46 Business CD Player off ebay, and some speakers.

They both look good on the outside. You will definently love sports package, its a little rougher ride, but it handles SUPERBLY.

Give us some more info on the cars

what yr model are the 328's?
I'd probably go for the white one, only because of the low milage compared to the black.

then again...it mainly depends on your taste dude. are u more of a cruiser, and laid back person..do u enjoy ur twisty roads and attack each corner. From there, you'll be able to solve your delimma yourself

Are you sure the white 328ci has the Sport Package? In looking at the pictures you posted, it doesn't have the sport seats and it doesn't have the wheels that come with the Sport Package. The 328ci should have 17 inch Type 44 wheels - those aren't them! As for the seats - those don't have the extender that pops out on the front of the seat for those with longer legs - those are the standard seats. Notice both the black and white cars you posted have the same seats and same wheels, yet you say only the white one has the Sport Package?

Anyhow, I'd take a black car over white any day of the week, but the black one has quite a few more miles. I'd keep looking, you can find a better package than these. Your going to regret not having xenons, and the Sport Package still offers a smooth ride.

I'd personally take the black one, becaus eI think white is more girlish! BUT... the other thing is that I think both premium and sports package and Bi-XENON headlights are essentials to a Bimmer. So if you want to have the ultimate driving experience, find one with all of those... it should not be hard.

just my ( 10 / 5 = 2 ) cents.

I'd take a 325 with all those over a 330 with only one or in your case a 323 over a 328 any day! But I am an idiot who wants to put money in the dealers' pockets for options!

they're pulling your chain - neither one of those cars you posted has the Sport Package.

I'd keep looking if I we're you........and keep researching these cars. Before you drop 15-20K on a car, you should know which options it has by looking at it. Don't let somebody fool you into thinking the car has options or packages that it really doesn't have.

I'd probably say the white one personally - stereo and speakers can be fixed more easily than other wear and tear.

i was about to say theres no sport package on either car.

personally i'd take the black. color combo on it is acceptable. IMO white and sand is kina weird lookin. And i think changing colors regardless of interior or exterior is very very pricey.
