@May 7 2005, 10:26 AM just a fact that i think EVERYONE missed on, they dont make a 96-98 325, the 328 is all OBDII, and the 325 is all OBDI.. basically after the emissions, in order to meet the same standards w/the 325, they increased the engine size to 2.8
Exactly. The 328 replaced the 325, so if you were to buy 92-95 it would be a 325, if you were to buy a 96-98 it'd be a 328. They did make a smaller 6 from 96-98 known as the 323, but if your asking which is faster, you'd probably be best served with one of the other two.
EIther way, if you want speed, buy an M3.
The earlier 325 can be modded and greatly improved, as it's OBDI set up lends itself well to modifications.
The 328 is more difficult to modify (OBDII), but if you spend some time and money, it can be made to equal a stock M3. I've done precisely that, but honestly, for the money I've put into it, I could have an M3 right now. All depends on what your looking for.
Oh, and yes, a 328 is significantly faster than a 325. tq is everything when your talking about 0-60 times, and the M52 equiped 328 has heaps more than the M50 found in 325's.
