So my 318 went against an Acura TL 3.2

HAHA so...
my girlfriends parents just gave her a 99 acura tl 3.2 and we decided to race (its amazing how people assume BMWs are always fast) . . i figured there was a chance she would be a puss about it and i could somehow win.. i got totally destroyed.. by the time i was at about 40 she was a car legnth ahed of me
maybe if i ahd a 328 i would've been able to take her

dumb story i know

1992 318i, Jet Black, Manual

I dunno man, my e46 328 has been beat by some of the 3.2TLs. I haven't bothered to look up the stock numbers on those acuras, but they must be higher than mine. It's still a fun jaunt though.

Its ok man who cares, at least you drive a BMW.

be happy with what u have and u dont have to race ur car all the time, all u care about is, it takes u from point A to point B in style.

I dont think so man, it depends on how u shift and the acuras have like no low end torque. they are pretty slow in the initial RPMs but i dont know about it on highway. I sat in my friends TSX and dude that car was slow.

The first round of TSX's had only 160 ft-lbs torque... and that was max. They had a stock 0-60 time in the mid 7 seconds. In short, my 328i would beat the pants off a TSX. The TL's are a bit beefier.

Yea the TSX's are only pushing 200 hp. 2001+ TL's push 235 or 245 if I remember right. The new TL's have 270.

I've never driven a 328 but my friend's parents have a 2002 3.2 TL (and we test drove a couple before buying our Maxima) and we've made a few muscle cars look silly in it. I'd imagine the TL might win, but I could be wrong. A 330might be a different story though.

My question is...since Acura intended the TSX to be a sports sedan, why didn't they throw an extra 30 or 40 hp into them? A 3.0 V6 with 200 hp seems mighty tame for what their intentions were.

your right man I thought it was 245 until my dad got his '03 in November....the 98-03 had 225 hp and the new has 258.

I'll be honest though, unless it's a brand new 330i sport I'll take the Acura....like the interior styling better. But that's me.
