lol m5's are no joke. theres this black 08' 325i sport coupe in my area. driven by this 22 year old. mind you his car is brand new, and this kid has a heavy foot as I always come across him having his foot to the floor. We come across at the lights one day, he's reving his car, and im thinking, what a muzz. lol. So i started thinking in a matter of seconds, he weighs roughly 100kg's more than mine, he has 25kw more, esp off, I said let's see how good his e92 325i goes. Long story short, he lost by 2 car lengths thanks to my e46 weighing just over 1400kg

I do, but I haven't painted it yet. It'll be on soon..

Wheels are e92 335i style 18x8.5s non staggered. 225/40 ZRs upfront, 235/40 ZR's rear, soon to be 245/35 in the rear as I can barely fit my finger in there..

ye.. even with the shark fin, they sit a little more foward than the OEM ones would...

imo, take the badge off or just leave the 323 on...

u dont want to get caught out...i pulled up to this guy at the lights in a silver coupe, and it had a 330ci badge, and it had a black shark fin, so i thought that was a bit strange... but i gave him a nod as if to say nice car (even though it looks pretty average, but being a fellow e46 driver i thought id give him some recognition) and because i had p's on back then, i knew he would wanna give me a bit of a run... so we both took off pretty aggresively, and to my surprise i was infront by a considerable margin.. thought that was a bit strange.. then as he pulled up to the next set of lights, i noticed he didnt have a 330ci front bar, or xenons, or headlight washers... then i truned to him and said "thats not a 330 is it mate?" he has a shocked look on his face and replies, nah its just a 320 actually...

not to mention a E92 323i i saw with a 335i bagde on it

lol yeh you come across those. I've seen many 320i's rebadged to 325i's and 330i's lol.

The only reason why i rebadged it is that it is indeed a 2.5L and that it does go as well as a 325i. I wanted to debadge it at first, lifted the letters one by one carefully and realised that the owner before me did have an attempt to debadge it before me but the previous owner stuffed it up so badly as I realised he pealed off the paint behind the letters and it was looking a little obvious as there were paint peal marks of the 323i badge so i just rebadged it to 325i. A 2.5L is a 325i imo. They only named it 323i for marketing purposes..

I don't really think they are supposed to feel quick though, more designed for highway storming which they do effortlessly.

Even the new 6.2 ltr donks don't feel fast, but they are. Very easy to loose your licence in one

For AMG's. Brabus all the way.
