love the color, but you didn't get projector headlights!!! Well, if you don't care about that i guess it's cool, but if you ever wanna upgrade it will cost you alot.

323

Wise selection, I couldnt justify the 4-5K more for the 325 either. 325 is 0.9 seconds faster then 323 in 0-60 + has xenons as std equipment in Canada. Other then that, no other major difference.

325i has the Xenon, fog, split-fold rear seat + ski bag, heated seats, BMW Professional HiFi (10 speakers), Automatic Climate Control, Cruise Control, Auto Dimming Mirror, rain sensor, better looking wheels, colour matching roof trim.

I actually find the 325i a better combination although one could live happily without the above.

Great choice in the 323i.

I went manual 6-speed, Sport and Premium pack, black sapphire and it is great in that spec as well.

323i is amazing value. I love it. Artic looks trick! Was my second choice

Enjoy it, GPI!

I must admit that I don't really like new BMWs without xenons. Standard headlights look so cheap and spoil the image of the car.

I have driven both 323i and 325 and I actually felt more connected to the engine in the 323 - it just felt more responsive. On a side note I could feel the windshield wipers through the brake pedal when at full stop (325). Anyone else experience this?

Now to my main question - how do you like the turn knobs on the climate control (323i)? During my test drive I didnít even move them around.

Nikki did an excellent photo shoot with her bimmer and the various light conditions too.

For some reason, my dealer said, Arctic is very popular at the moment.

Enjoy the pics .....
How long of a wait? I purchased (put down deposit) the same exact car (323i/Arctic/Beige/w Auto & Prem Pkg) on March 27, and I still don't have the car. I was told June when I put the order in, I was just wondering how long other people in the country had to wait. I bought from Open Road in Newmarket, ON. The wait is killing me, especially since i ordered an almost exact car to a courtesy car they have on the lot (same model and color combo) but they would not sell it.

mhaw,

I signed the deal in Calgary on March 10th and I am expecting to have it this week (May 24th-ish). The wait is killing me too!!

All you need now is to strip the interiors, swap in the M5 engine, and some nice wheels and suspension you'll be all set :rocks: .

great color! the pictures are squished, just make sure next time when you resize to do both the horizontal and vertical the same. arctic is a popular color in europe it seems. i'm kind of glad it isn't here, since i like it being more rare. i hardly ever see arctic but when i do i get so excited. good luck with your new car!

It took about 10 weeks to get mine.
