Cool Compare: 328 vs 528

What is the difference between a 328 and a 528? Is the 528 really that bigger? Is the weight very different? Performance wise are you better off with a 328?

Don't be lazy. Google got rich, apparently because people use the search button every once in a while.

528's are nice, I got a ride in superdeadmans before.

528 is more luxurious, a bit heavier, larger vehicle.

328 a bit more sporty, tad smaller and lighter.

Would you be getting a manual transmission, and/or planning to drive it spiritedly?

Go 528 for lux and cruisin'...328 for DRIVING.

All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.

1999 528i curb weight - Google Search

1999 328i curb weight - Google Search

You didnt look very hard, seeing as their curb weights are listed in the description of the first search result that comes up.

Their gearing is roughly the same, so the weight is the main factor.

They're both fun, go test drive both, whatever fits you better is the car for you.

top6491 is an unknown quantity at this point
I have an '01 325, and it is sooo much fun to drive, but a larger car would be nice. I have driven an '02 525, and it's handling was disappointing to say the least, so if you want a larger size but all the fun, go for an older M5, which is what I am now looking for. Or buy the 5'er and adjust the suspension.

congrats!
but should have waited on the right 5-er
i got M package on mine and it's a BEAST!!!

handles better than a lot of cars on the road (i can easily go 120 into 55mph turn with the stock suspension and not even fear for losing control)

it actually handles better than my buddy's firebird (yeah, i know - a boat) with about 3 or 4k in suspension parts!!!
