Hey all, i'm proud of my car. I know most of you have bimmers with a ton of mods and what not, but you know why i love bimmers most...? Cause they don't need mods like other cars do to have power (sure you can mod to get more but they come oh so sweet). I have a 1995 325is (189 hp) I know an m3 could jerk me like i'm nothing, but hey i'm proud of what i can get.

Anyways, i recently rced a friend of mine, has a Chevy Caprice (i know your thinking haha, did he say caprice) well this was a police vehicle, highly modified (unfortunately muffled a bunch) but it has the LT1 engine, police suspension set up (not sure the kind but you can tell its not original, its really sporty feeling suspension), perormance chip with speed limiter removed, and what ever else they do (no blue lights on it tho, darn), 1991 model i think. Anyways he wanted to race so i was like well, i don't care, don't have anything to lose, but off the line we were side by side. He was off the line first cause his is an auto, mine is manual. I hit second and started the lead, hit third and was a car length ahead, hit forth and a car came around the corner and almost hit him head on. If i wasn't far enough ahead he would have been trapt in. But anyways.....

He was giving that thing heck tonight and peeled out onto the main road, and started jerking it from side to side and it swerved left and kept going, he went off the road, through a 3 ft trench just recently dug for pipelines and back into the parking lot where me and some other guys were watching, the girl with him was about to die she was so scared, lol. Anyways before he did that he was doing some pretty good donuts but i prefer not to do them unless i have a really good crowd. I have had my car for a month now so this was a first, i was like what the heck (was already in first just creeping along) jerked it to the right hard and floored it and jerked it to the left and got into the donuts and (keep in mind this is the first time i have really tried this in this car, more power than i'm used to) before i knew it it was tacked out in first gear so i shifted to second and it tacked out in a sec, shifted to third, tcked out, shifted to fourth and by this time i was so out of it due to shock and amazement i didn't even think to try fifth, i tacked fourth and was freaking out! I'm so freaking amazed at my car, i love bimmers more and more everyday. Best part is they said it was poz-traction the whole time (no clutch smells either). They were all like holy crap. It was a glorious moment!

Does anyone else have any other awesome e36 325 or similar engine power stories? I wanna hear them! Oh yeah, i raced 1999 mustang gt the other day and he couldn't keep up, this was up hill on a fairly straight road too. I used to have a 1986 325(e). It was a pretty good car, but the upgrades they've made are so awesome. Thanx for reading my 325power story. Hope you will share some here too.

later and rock on 3-series :rock

(oh yeah anyone like it will spin through fifth? just wondering it anyone has tried in a e36 325is or not, all it has modified is a k&n airfilter)

10-4 and i'm out.

if the caprice was a 91 it was not a lt-1, cause they didn't use that motor yet, think it was still a TPI style motor, which would be why you kicked his ass, did he have the rear side skirts, cause that would tell if it was 92 or earlier, which would mean no lt-1, and yeah i love my 325 and all, its pretty decently fast, but i have driven much faster cars so its not that great to me, and I would have to say you didn't beat a GT, must have been a v-6 with a look alike package, or a really bad driver or soemthing

You're not alone with the stock thing - at present I can't afford to do anything with my 5er but hey I'm satisfied for the minute, the wish list is exactlly that - A WISH list.

PS a 325 isn't exactly classed a a slow car anyhow - would blow me away!

Keep enjoying :D :D :D

well, weather or not it came stock i'm not sure, by my friends 91 caprice DOES have the LT1 engine in it, i have seen it. It is a used police car, they could have come upgraded with that eninge, not sure but i do know that it is an LT1 engine. I think some come with the 305 engine. Anyways.......I raced a friend of mines T Mustang. It was really close. They were pretty much even, but it seems like they don't have as much top end started in 3rd gear, cause we were glued together 1st and 2nd, then 3rd slowly beat em. It was a 95 GT Mustang, 215 hp and 288 lb-ft. They had about 20 more horses and about 100 more lb-fts, but don't understand why mine accelerates faster after 2nd gear. Anyways just thought i would let ya'll know. Keep tha stories coming! later all!

BMW's have magic gears... let the other guy think he's gonna win, and then spank em for thinking that after you hit 3nd gear.

Holy shiz you live in NC, so do I... I have a puny 98 323is... it does NOT have enough power for me, and it's an autofaggot with an open differential.

I'm going to the dealership tomorrow because it has finally been fixed, (I hydroplaned into a curb) and I'm dropping off my new perelli's so they can plop them on, and let them rip me a new one (at least $3,000 woth of repairs for an axle U joint, rear trailing arm, control arm, shocks and some bushings)

hey sorry about sounding like a bmw hater before, i really don't think they had lt-1s stock in the 91 caprices, but it could have been moded, and yeah i guess the GT stangs are not that fast, I ran one on my g-tech and it had some mods like exhaust and it only ran like a 14.9 so yeah there not that fast, they could easily be beat just with some driver error, just surprises me that a 2.5 can stay with a 5.0, cool
