Hi MPower
Thanks for your reply
I just had a look on the BMWWebsite under news - see extract below
Looks the 0-100 time for the 323 is now the same (almost) as the 325. Or are you saying that the 325 will be dropped once this change occurs? Is that what happens?


**********
Additionally, the 323i Sedan and 323i Touring models gain from a 10 kW increase in power, with the in-line aluminium-magnesium six-cylinder engine now producing 140 kW.
All 323i models, Sedan and Touring, manual and automatic, also record faster acceleration times with the manual 323i Sedan, for example, reaching 100 km/h from a standing start in a rapid 7.8 seconds.

I expect the 325i to be dropped since it is exactly the same engine as if found in the 323i as the only difference is the way the engine management system is programmed, also i don't see the point in having to near identical models in the line up.
The 328i is on sale elsewhere in the world alreay and a staggered line up of 323i, 328i and 335i would seem like a more natural fit.
