It really depends on what your interests are. Id say go with the 325i cuz it was more power. Then again, id also say try and get a 325iS. or a 318iS. Just try and stay 88 and above. so that you dont get the diving board bumpers. Im not raggin on older BMW's, im just sayin if you have the choice, you should try and stay as new as possible.
