If you really want to have fun then bring your ratchet set and go for all the bolts holding in the engine oil, trans fluid, and diff fluid then go for any and all driveline / differntial / suspention mounts and connectors.

All depends on time

thanks I love my F150

I didn't mean in a derogatory sence...but there are very small differences between a 325I prem sport and a 330I prem sport but an M3 has a lot of different things...

Front fenders
Rear fenders
Hood
Front bumper
Rear bumper
front and rear suspension components
front and rear breaks
LSD
Engine
Nappa Leather

as you can see they are noticeable difference to anyone

I think he knew that...ya I weighed my truck and its 7800lbs of diesel furry and it's over 500HP

When they studded mine they took the cab off.

Jake-didn't you beat someone's 330I with your 325I?

Read above, and you forgot rims, spoiler, quad exhaust, interior trim and SMG trans.

My friends all thought I had an M3 for like the first year I had it... it was only in chemistry class one day did a couple of them figure it out. Most people will not notice larger brake size, fender size, or the presence of an LSD without some assistance.


And there are differences between a 323Ci and a 330Ci (especially ZHP), such as:

Hood
Front bumper
Rear bumper
front and rear suspension components
front and rear brakes
Rims
LED/HID adaptive lights
Engine (m52 vs cammed M54)
Sports seats
5 speed / 6 speed
Audio
Exhaust
trans/diff ratios

To us (enthusiasts) its a very quick thing to pick out, but to most people a nice black bmw is just a nice black bmw.

I have picked out a M3 from over 2 blocks away before, and Im not even kidding. (it was black, the fenders gave it away) It was only once we had caught up with it were we able to confirm it was an ///M lol

I stand corrected.

I'm not that familiar with the comp packages...

I just new when we were shopping for a 3 series for her the only difference I saw was the engine and wheels...we got a 05 330I mostly b/c they are a lot easier to find with the sport package and she liked the way the sport drove and the seats.
