328is = heavier, sturidier suspension.

328i would probably win by 2 inches.

hmmm. i heard that the 328is was lighter then the 328i
using the argument that the 328 has 2 more doors and a larger b pillar
either way... the differnce in gas in the tank and weight of drivers/ passengers/subs in trunk, as well as how well each person shifts would determine the race.

The IS is heavier, due to the extra letter on the trunk.

Do you plan on doing a lot of 328 only racing?... jk...

Thicker and a stronger suspension count for the weight...

I hear that the two door is heavier. Since the gap between the A pillar and the B pillar is significantly larger, it needs reenforcement so the chassis is stronger around the doorframe which means it's heavier. But don't cound on that info

So, to recap, I have the heaviest, slowest 6cyl.......
auto transmission, 2 door, and it's a 323 so it's like an economy 325...
