That's like saying, should I get a 323 or an m3? They are way different in style and performance. If I had to chose, I would get the 335

So It would be a waste to fix up the 328 then. CuZ I have no type of money for the 335 at this point.

An auto 328 would be a worthless build. What would you do to it? Do you even have a general direction in which you would take the car?

Just keep it fresh with a nice suspension and some wheels for style points. Drive it for what it is and leave it at that. Best advice I got for you coming from a fellow 328 owner. Best of luck with the car.

Then obviously you have no choice but the 328 at this point. I would look for a manual tranny. I did a 5 speed swap on mine. Also check out the subframe? Though I'm not sure if the 00 328 had a subframe issue. But check anyways. Also check some maintenance records on work that has been done.

What we were all trying to say is, if you have the money for a 335 then why would you get an auto 328.
You stated that you don't have the money so a 328 would be just fine. However if you're into performance improvement it's going to make your life better to start with a manual trans instead of an auto
