Buying E46

I'm looking to buy an e46 post face lift and was wondering which model is the best bang for the buck?

Not really, most 330s do have sport seats and a few more standard options.

I haven't seen to many sport seat 325i/ci, but they do exist.

I've also seen a few 323ci with sport seats, which is pretty rare.

Are you looking at a coupe or sedan?

Yes, the option of having a car with decent sized testicles.
