A V6 accord is slower than a 328i in terms of straightline performance, 0-60 tested on a 328i is around 6.5s, and a V6 Accord is about 7.5s I would believe that my 328i can take a V6 accord on a track any day as well.
A V6 Accord Coupe can easily go from 0-60 in the low 6s with the MT. I would say stock for stock, MT to MT a V6 Accord is about equal to the 328 in terms of straight-line performance, which is to say both cars are pretty quick.
