How fast does your 325 or 328 go in first gear? I make it to just under 40mph before hitting 6000 rpm. 1996 328i stock. I just don't feel like I am going as fast as it sounds -- hehe. Please let me know.

That's about right.

Funny story: I was driving home from work after a 13hr shift. I was tired and getting on to the freeway trying to pass an (asshole) semitruck driver. I had the car in first gear (and music too loud) so i gunned it thinking i was in second gear. I hit about 40MPH and the governor must have kicked in when i hit the redline and man was that like hitting a brick wall! I then shifted to second gear and smoked the bastard.

Yes... going just under 40mph in 1st gear is right.

i think my gearing in my 1995 325is is alittle diff, i think it goes as follows:

1st: approx. 30-35mph
2nd: approx. 60mph
3rd: approx. 80-85mph
4th: approx. 120-125mph
5th: not possitive, but somewhere around 130mph with original chip.

...mine just seems like its alittle lower than these, not by much but still. I haven't really studied it much when i run it hard, i will next time, but i'm pretty sure my figures are correct for my car. Anyone else's 325 follow these pretty close?

Almost off-topic but not quite: WHat is the best way to get the fastest 0-60 then?

(I am not very motor-sporting knowledgeable -- but I don't fall into the "representing with style, not speed" category either).

do you have a chip installed? i'll test mine out tomorrow and let you know if i had mine right, but i think my 3rd goes to 80 or 85 at redline. It's a 95 325is so it should do same as yours so i'll check it.
