Do I need a front/rear strut tower bar?
Short answer : No
Long answer : If you have a few hundred to burn, then go ahead. The front bar has some minute effect, as does the rear. Putting in a front bar looks cool, and will have little/no negative impact on your vehicle. 323/328 vehicles need updated strut hats with longer studs. Rear bars take up trunk space, and don't do much. You will get mixed reviews, but as a whole they won't net you any real benifits.
