In Taiwan, the 325i really is a 2.5l engine and puts down 220hp. Not that fastest thing in the universe but more than adequate and so smooth. I will miss it when/if I switch to the 2.0l 4 cylinder despite the power and torque boost.
For reference on BMW power levels, you can get a 320i here with 155hp, and even 316 and 318d. So even the 325 is in the middle of the power ban for our cars.
