I disagree. My mother drives a 323i 5-speed, and when it went into a 6-week long warranty repair at Autohaus (who royally messed up the job, but that's another story) we had a 320i 5-speed loaner. The power difference is very, very noticeable. While a 323 and a 325 are close in feel (she got one of those once; it sounds a lot better but the power is close), the 320 is definitely weaker in the midrange than either.
