189 stock HP and you'll gain in the upwards of 20-30 extra hp if you do it right with the chip, exaust and intake.

If it's possible, go for the 328... more torque... in reality you don't "feel" HP, mainly torque, if you want to feel the car get off the line, the 328 will be better than the 325, just some info B)

he's right.. but you can always add more lowerend torque by getting a new diff like I did and some other mods as mentioned before... I would be willing to bet that my 325i with the future mods I'm doing will be as fast if not faster then a 328i

Not mine...MUHAHAHA MUHAHAHA.

The 328 only gains a couple of hp over it's 325 counterpart for a total of 191hp, but packs a whopping 26ft-lbs of torque more than the 325 for a total of 207. With the proper budget and mods, it is quite easy to pass the 250hp/250ft.-lbs torque mark.

congrats on making it a Bimmer. Check the FAQ section of this site for common problems, and the stock tq would be as I stated before, 26 less than a 328 at 207 which equals 181ft-lbs.

The most common mods....

Performance Chip
Cold Air Induction Unit
Free Flow Exhaust
Short Shift Kit

Get it on a lift. This will tell you a lot. Using the info found in the FAQ's you will know what to look for. If you question it's power upon a test drive, have the shop perform a compression check, this will determine the health of the internals.

If the car is near you, take it to a trusted shop. IF you have to travel, call ahead and find one.
