I someone can compare the performance in term of 0.60 time and time 50 to 75 mph or any other figures to give me a precise idea. I hesitate if i will go on a 325 or a 320. Actually i own a 2003 accord coupe 4 cym AT

I'm also interested to have this figure for manual transmission

Thank you

I am positive that a 325 will blow a ricer accord out of the water in all 3 times.

Errrr, that depends (unfortunately)..

The 325i could easily handle a 4banger Accord (stock vs stock)
It could not handle a V6 Accord Manual, maybe auto if the 325i was manual. It would ultimately be a drivers race.

The V6 Accord posts good times, with 260hp it's not slow, especially with a manual in the LX Coupe.

However a 330 would not have trouble with the V6.

Add any sort of twisty into the mix and the above goes out the window, as the bmw does have superior handling to the accord (stock vs stock). If you gave the Accord their OEM suspension package, and gave the BMW the ZHP package, it makes it even worse for the accord..

My final two choices were between a cert-used 2003 320iA and a new 2004 Accord V6 Coupe(A). The Accord was several thousand dollars(C$) cheaper. In terms of sheer performance, the Accord won hands down: 0-60 in under 7sec. Even the 330iA would find that hard to beat. In terms of interior fittings, the Accord had all the trimmings - leather, dual climate, electric seats, great sound system. Long term cost of ownership and depreciation, about equal. BUT - the Bimmer fitted me like a comfortable glove. It felt so much better, I was One with the car. That was the winner for me. Oh... and it was, after all, a Bimmer.

wait. yes the 325i can take the 4 cylinder Accord any day of the week.

The new v6 accords hit 14.5 qtr miles. The 330i is slower
