For you n/a fans.

I'm waiting to get one of the redesigned 328i's and i'm questioning wehther 230hp is enough power. I seem to like the output of the 06 330 which is around 255hp. I wonder why bmw won't use the 330i tuned engine rather than the 328i's engine. I'm thinking thatbmw wants to keep an economical fuel saving car. Anyone else think that the new 09-on 328i should use the 06 330i engine?

Yes, I'm sure if you wish for it really bad, it's going to happen.

Think really hard their buddy. 335 is the upgrade of the 330 and the 328i is the upgrade form the 325.

its the same engine... just not the same intake manifold and ECU combo which is what gave the 330 a boost in power over what it was in the 325 back then and what it is currently in the 328
