hey guys i'm looking into buying an e46 3 series, hopefully a 323i, with a manual tranny and i was wondering how quick these things actually are. Like what is a quarter mile on one of these and what other cars would they keep up with. thanks

323s arent the fastest things on the face of the earth, but they can hold there own around turns. Low 7s for 0-60

2000BMW323i is an unknown quantity at this point
My 2000 323i will do 0-60 in 7.1 sec. pretty good for only 170hp. The New Altimas with 250+hp do the 0-60 in 7.5. The BMW has a lot of Pep, great handling, But don't go out there thinking you can beat a New Mustang (GT or Cobra) those things were built for just speed.
