Question Difference between 325i and 328i

I recently ordered my 328i on 01 Sep 06 through Pentagon Car Sales for $ 28,300 (MSRP) with Sport Package and Xenon lights. Total of $ 30,980 including shipping. By the way it's for military sales and government only stationed in Germany. Anyway, I'm currious as far as what's the difference between these two cars, besides having more hp, and duh name. Is it possible to use the same aftermarket parts for it? ie, suspensions, brakes, and body kits. Before this I was actually considering an 07 Audi A-4 S-line but the salesman was ripping me off over the phone. Selling me stateside prices. Help peeps.

No, seriously besides the difference in model value, lol. I know it's the same chassis and same engine but I just wanna make sure what to get when buying parts. Does anyone know?

Really, that's it? Oh well, I guess I could plan on buying parts as soon as I get it.

you know search button is your friend....anyways. it basically has the detuned version of the X3 3.0Si engine, which the only difference is different pistons but i beleive same single stage intake, thus giving it a slight boost in hp...nothing major though..
