HI I'm contemplating between a 230E and a 260E. Can anyone who owns either
of these two models share their experiences with me please? which one is a
better car in terms of Fuel Consumption, ride, maintenance, etc? Anything
particular to look out for?

and whats the difference between the recon and local model?

my papa used to have a 230E before buying the current 260E 10 years ago.
The 230E only 4 cylinder and kinda under power and comparative got more
engine noise going into the cabin.

FC is almost similar on highway but town drive 230E still consume a little
better. Suspension would be the same.
