i hear ya man, since your deciding to stick with your 323 i would just get basic upgrades, ie. exhaust/intake/headers. You cant really make the 323 really that fast, maybe FI but in that case a bit much $$$ to dump on it... just my 2cents man.

Doesnt matter as much upgrades you do on it, it wont stick with the M3's, save your money up and get an M3.

Is there no way to get it up to M3 Specs on my own? Such as Engine swaps.... and new parts? If that is the case I may have to just revert to the M3....... case anyone know where to get one?

I am not going to get the M3, just returning from a Second Deployment (deployed 21/25months) And I want to stick with the 323Ci I have. Yes it won't match the M3's but hey, I don't want to start top of the line, I want to play with something and get it up there as high as I can. Then Move to a better product. Is there any place in PNW that can fix dents and re-paint?
