    Re: 97 vs 98 sedan

    The 97's (unsure about '98's) were a mixed bag of options. Some had manual seats, some did not have cruise control. Some were "Lux" package - all options plus wood trim, but no chin spoiler lip & standard (non-M3 specific) rocker panel coverings. Makes it tough to find "the right one"!

    98 sedan has front side airbags + rear headrests

    Very minor changes. Both had the same options lists.

    I have an early 98. It has manual seats, cruise control, M3 rocker panels, front-lip spoiler, rear-seat headrests and a very high fun to drive quotient.

    I thought 3-spoke wasn't until '99, hence no sedan

    Re: 97 vs 98 sedan

    I have a late 97 sedan with "lux " package. Power seats, no rear headrests (I prefer for vis), no front spoiler lip, has wood trim, fold down rear seats.
    Purchased new, still perfect 11 years later, only 51,000 miles on the clock. Nothing is more fun to drive. Have used it as my daily driver since day one.
