Yea, I responded to your comment on my youtube page. I'll say this what I said there. I did the manual swap to my 323, had it sharked, ran a CAI and so on, but it was NEVER a 330. The difference in rated horsepower between it and my ZHP is 65hp, that makes a BIG difference. Not to mention a lot more torque too. And the 330 is nicer, I really like facelift cars as they age, they tend to not look as dated.

A lot of the guys on here told me for years I should just get a 330 and be done with it, I didn't have the money so I did the best I could for the 323i. But the second I had the cash and the deal presented itself, I jumped ship and it was the best decision I have ever made.
