Where are you located? This will make a difference. In the US/Canada, the only difference is that the 325is is the 2-door coupe, while the 325i is the 4-door sedan.

In other regions, I think the -is denotes a sportier make-up. In that case, I'd recommend the -is.

My 328is looks just like an ///M. It has all the ///M bodywork. Where as the regular "i" doesn't. My interior is that of an ///M also.

Alright. So the only difference is that the 325i is a sedan and the 325is is the coupe. All coupes have the sport suspension form the factory, but if the sedan has teh sports package, then you get the same suspension setup.

The sedan body is more structurally sound (if you are thinking of tracking teh car).

Good luck.
