When I want "more power" I just drive downhill.

And then for those who want even more, there's the S54....

Who's into seeing elephants, really...
This is by far the most sensible power upgrade for a 325. It's a plug-n-play swap. A nice bonus is the higher diff gear ratio that the 325 has vs the 330. I did this swap in one of my two 2004 325Ci's and the difference between driving them is obvious.
