Engine Difference between the 325i and the 330i

Im glad to say I am a proud new owner of an 06' 325i. My question is what are the differences to the 2006 330i's engine that bump it up to 257horsepower over the 325i's 215 horse power, and is there anyway to modify the 325i's engine easily to get that power??

Just curious. Do you have an E90 Titanium Silver 325i (debadged) and ever drive in Isla Vista?

And it would probably cost you more to bump it to 330i power than it would have to just buy a 330i in the first place

Short answer, no. If you wanted the extra power, best and cheapest way would have been to buy the 330i.

Danny

P.S. I just hope there are no 330i owners who would ask such a question when the 335 comes out...

either way, I know I can't afford it, the 330i was the max for me! I certainly have no shame sharing that.
