Stock for stock, the 328 is still faster, but not by much at all. For some reason I have seen a few dynos on this board and the 325 and 328 are very close in power. I believe the 328 would be slightly heavier. I still think the 328 wins if they are both sticks but it wouldnt be by alot. The difference between a 330 and 325 is much bigger then the difference was between the 323 and 328.

0 - 60 times are 6.5 for a manual 328 and 7.1 for a manual 325 (stock times)

I've raced many 325's before, and I have yet to lose to one, I always pull away. the 325 might "feel" faster though to the driver because the gas pedal on the 328's and 323's are herder to push down

Where did you see 0-60 times at 6.5 for a 328? I never saw that published by BMW, I am just curious
I have the brochure right here next to my computer from when i got my car. its the 323 and 328 sedan book they had at the dealership published by bmw. Its all the way in the back of the book where it lists it's specs, thats how I got the times:thumbup:
