U.S Model of an 06' 323i Canadian model

Are any of the 325i's or 328i's U.S models similar to the 06' 323i Canadian model?

I'm not really sure what your question is asking but to answer your question the 325i would be the closest in terms of performance to the 323i. In Canada, the 325i in 2006 was the 3.0L 215hp and 323i with a 2.5L 200hp.

The 325i came with dual-zone climate as well as a hifi system with 9 speakers. The 323i in Canada did not have a dual-zone climate and had the base stereo system with 6 speakers.

The 328i replaced the 325i in 2007+ with a 3.0L 230hp engine.

The parts are the same except for the engine displacement.

You will get sports suspension on sedans if you opt for the sport package.

So if I take rotors and pads from an 06' 325i U.S model, it will be the same?

And as you also stated the 2007+ 328i's have 230 hp, so its 15hp either way. Not much difference between the 3 models...

Beware.

I assumed that rotors on a 2007 328i would fit on a 2007 323i.... not! The rotors on the 323i are LARGER than the 328i, which was upgraded in 2008.

Check on realoem.
