The 325 is nice, but a FRS/BRZ is fun. That's why I say it's a worthy jump.
First, the 328 is NOT noticeably quicker. 330 was, and 328 is fairly slower than the 330.
The rest is your subjective view that may not apply to the OP.
Finally, comparing M3 (any) to FRS just sums it up for me that our opinions differ greatly...
