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.
that part i bolded is EXACTLY what i was going for, trust me i can appreciate bmws (see sig) I LOVE BMWs 328 or m3, i love em all, and my mistake on the "accord" statement if that was incorrect, i didn't say that based on any sort of research. but what i was trying to state to the OP in my first post is NOT that a 328 isn't a great, car (because it is, or else i wouldn't own one) but it's that a 328/325 is NOT built for straightline speed and when it comes to daily driving (at least in my opinion) 15 hp doesn't make a huge difference in a daily commute
