hez325i is an unknown quantity at this point
Thumbs up

arent the brakes on the 330 bigger than the ones on the non-sport package 325i (2001)? if so.....is it possible, (or even worth the idea) to swap the brakes out?
I plan on putting the 330i 5spoke 17" on there anyways.....

and what about the stock "sport" suspension,,,,,can i upgrade, and put those components on my "non sport package" 325i ?

1. yes
2. thats up to you
3. yes

for the suspension, unless you have a donor 330, i would just go with aftermarket springs such as h&r. the 330 brakes will deffinately require 17" wheels, but the increased surface area will not give you shorter stopping distances on the street. the 330 brakes will show their strengths over the 325 brakes when both are equally abused on a track or auto-x course
