My Ride: 320i
Send a message via ICQ to Atlas
I got a 320i too =) 2004, Mystic Blue, Step. Although i would love more power, I'm grateful for what I have, and hell it looks the same as any other 330 on the road anyway.

I've also found that 320 specific parts are hard to come by, but generally 325 parts fit the same. I've so far installed Remus exhaust and Simota CAI, plus CCFL Angel Eyes and LED indicators/license plate lights.

It's not sold in US only europe and Canada. I just bought a 2001 320i. Feature wise it's the same car as the 325i just with a slighly smaller (M54) engine. 2.2L inline 6, 170 HP.


Thanks

My Ride: '01 320i_2.2 m-tech
320i '01 2.2 170hp, m-tech, silver, can't fault it, first car was 318i saloon so a nice step up, obv not on a par with m3.

haven't started modifying it yet, will keep it subtle, mainly engine and exhaust. not easy to come across after market parts in Ireland either....i know both 320 and 325 are m54 engines but is there a manifold upgrade for it? with the m52 you can fit the m50 manifold as an upgrade...anyone upgrade?

Sardar, did you have to upgrade much to install the supercharger?

not 100%, correct me if i'm wrong but is the 320 a detuned 325 or is it that the 325 is a detuned 328?

320i has an M54 engine and the 323i has an M52 engine. Its the same size and similar (or the same) horsepower, just one is newer.

thought the 323 had 2.5l m52 engine....up to 01 i think, and the 325 from '01 has the 2.5l m54 engine.
i think the older 320 was m52 or m50, not 100% which was a 2.0ltr, '01 the 320 came with 2.2ltr m54
