Buying Bmw. Please help

Hey everyone, my name is Alex and I live in the cayman islands (Caribbean)
Due to my location, I have to bring in a bmw for my self from overseas.

I just wanted to get some opinions, my options are:
E90 320i, 323i or 325i. The years are between 2005-2008/9
The roads here are iffy (some smooth, some rough) and the fastest you will every go on this tiny island is 40-50 mph so engine power isn't a big issue, I'm leaning more toward fuel economy (I'm coming from a little toyota yaris)

I was looking at the website beforward.jp to order it from (if you know any other websites, please let me know)

What are the main differences between these models?
I appreciate the help
Thanks again!

I'd post this on the British area. These models aren't available in the USA. Here we have 328, 335, and M3.

If you have opportunity to import from UK, get 320d (diesel). Plenty of torque and very economical. They don't smell nor have much issues. Earlier models will have some issues with flaps on 3 stage intake. You can easily remove these and will never have to worry about them. You would lose about 4hp. Which does not matter at speeds you will be doing.

If you have access to diesel on your island, I would look at like a 330d or something. If you're after economy, the diesel cars are your best bet.

I don't think any of those models you listed will really provide a good platform for modding from a speed standpoint. Obviously you could do suspension/handling upgrades and cosmetics with any model.
