Ok - 230 Or 320 ???

Hello once again.

Apart from the obvious which would you go for, the 230 or 320?
Insurance isn't an issue, I'd just like to know the pros and cons of either.

Thanks

230

+ easy to upgrade by ECU
+ lower fuel consumption
- standard sound
- 4 cyl.

320

+ good sound
+ 6 cyl.
- more weight on the front axis
- difficult and expensive to upgrade

Both have the same high speed and speed-up.

Thanks, I'm not really into upgrades, so may go for the 320.

The 320 is a smoother machine than the 230. And if you're not into upgrades, you're making the right decision by going with the 320.

320

320 all the way:

1. nicer interior
2. bigger and better engine
3. sound is wayyyyy better


i have an 01' 320 sport and i love it, plan on getting clear side markers and might debadge the sport, but don't regret not getting a 230 at all.

My out of pocket costs operating a 320 have been very low. I get 23-29mpg with a K&N air filter and no other upgrades. I am very happy I purchased this model.
