Yeah about 2 months ago Before I got my current car I was considering a 99 323i cause they were so cheap.
But yeah they have alot of tranny and electrical problems. I hear most of the issues were sorted out in 2001.
So id get an 01+ for sure.......and if you're serious about getting an 01 then put a little bit more down and get an 02 sedan, you will not regret it.
