welcome, first i would suggest getting a PPI (pre purchase inspection) from an indy or someone who specializes in BMW's. 330i is far superior to the 323, and having an SMG trans is very rare for a non-m. It does have its issues and a costly repair if does crap out. its really what you can really afford, because it is close to the double the price, but you do have more than 100k less, and its 4 years newer. If the PPI checks out the 330 i would definitely get that
