Quick Question?

How easy would it be to convert a 325i to 335i?
I have a bit of 'surplus cash' & want something to smile about everyday

It's a piece of piss. Simply sell the 325i and buy a 335i. If you're seriously suggesting changing the engine, 'box, the LKM, the reprogramming, the diff, the brakes, the suspension, the exhaust system and various other bits, amounting to a small fortune, I'd assume you were taking the piss.

Sell the 325i
Buy a 335i

or do a part exchange.

I suspect that if you did the conversion the cost would far exceed that of just swapping.

Doh...I took way to long to actually write such a short response.

You are best off using your 'surplus cash' for a part ex. It would be madness to even think about a convertion.

Make sure you keep enough cash behind for a JB4. Makes the car a completely different animal!!
