Hey guys. I'm thinking of getting a 2000 328 or 2001+ 330
Can you tell me your thoughts, likes and dislikes of these. I currently have a C230 Kompressor Benz, and was thinking of getting a little more for my buck. I think that a BMW will give me more of a sport feel i'm looking for.
Basically i'm looking for any and all info on a benz. Specially the little toys and perks.
Thanks guys.

i believe that you will get way more satisfaction out of a bmw than a benz, there will be more power available to you and the handling will be a very surprising feature of the car. there are also many extra features and anemnities. 330 would be the best choice

Do you have the CLK 230? you should have bought the SLK 230 if you wanted sporty performance.. and they have many upgrades for the 230's I-4 Supercharged engine.

he said C230

also mercedes 1.8L Supercharged has more power than the 325, but less than the 330. At least the new one does.

Actually I have 2002 c230 Kompressor, that one is a 2.3 194HP 200 torque
About the only upgrade that makes a difference is a pulley (that's if you have a 6 spd. With auto, a chip is very useful), pushes up to 240HP 230 torque, and then you're done.
So I was just wondering if I can get more out of 328 or 330
