Need some advice '01 325CI

OK, I'm looking at one now after a good deal of researching and am not sure what I am missing out on here. If I don't have sports or premium packages but have all the options that I am looking for, am I going to be wishing that I had waited it out for either full package??

Basically, is there any advantage to having the full sports and/or premium pkg over individual options that I want (sunroof/Xenon/Heated Seats/traction). One thing that stood out in my mind is the seats. Am I missing out not having sports package seats, and are the non-sports seats power adjustable or manual. Thanks very uch for any help. -BJ

P.S. - does anybody have any preference between '01 and '02 325CI between "facelift" years?? Cause I don't know what to look for in the differences.

hello,

ok, for the coupes there is no facelift until 2004 models

so you have any anything to worry about

2002+ came stock with clear lens, so they look alot better

get the sports package and sunroof, forget about the rest

i have premium, dont care for it.. sports package is only good for the seats, and there is no other way to get it. well worth it.

Get the Sport pack...it's a must. The seats alone are well worth the price of it. Also, you get the 17" wheels instead of the regular 16". The non-sport seats are ok to some..not me...they feel unsupportive. Also, '01 will have the orange indicators, they clears came stock on '02 coupes with sport pack only.
