I know what you mean, this one's is an auto so it feels like its missing a pedal now when i drive it. you have a sweet ride, sick rims. JB4, LED AE's, and Blacklines are the first one my to do list

Thanks, appreciate it
Unfortunately I don't have those turbos, so no JB4 for me!

Having driven the 325ci for 5 years, and the 330i for going on 2, yes...it is MUCH faster. A 70hp difference is huge. And in about 2 months, it will be more of a 90hp difference

My brother has a 325ci and I drive it on a regular basis. I drive a 328i with no mods only zsp and I pull on him pretty easily.

i know that....

but he said he was improving the hp in his 330 from a 70hp advantage to a 90hp advantage over the 325. hence my inquiry as to where the extra 20hp was coming from.

Just to get thins clear: you "race" a car on a public road WHILE filming it with one hand? - not the smartest thing I can imagine. But on the topic I assumed the 335 would be a bit faster.

That was like when I was racing e46 M3 on the highway. By 120mph, the thing was at least 2 exists ahead. I think. It was so far away, I couldn't even tell if that was the same car I was racing.
