My thoughts on a 325


i havent driven my 325i since august, or an e30 for that matter.

last night im chillin and see this e30 come out of now where doing donuts and shit and im like YEEEEEEEEEEE

then im like wait a second i know this ****er!
so he comes aparks etc. i look at the model its just 325 (thats the 327 i believe)

but yes he kept telling me its 2.5 im like nahhh its 2.7 believe me lol

so i took it for a spin and i say DAMN i miss e30

but im like its only a super eta or im like iokay lets see what it got
i punch it in first and then i say.......this car needs an i head.

in conslusion
2.7 feels like a 4 cylinder. so now i have fully considered doing a 327i come summer time. that should be interesting
R.I.P. E30

2.7 Doesn't feel like a 4.

I have a 4 now and its a lot peppier.

2.7L felt kinda like the 4.3 in my blazer.

That being said that motor would drive me to the end of the world and back and not complain.

the 325e feels more torquey but but has no power top end
325i has way more power top end after 3100 it all begins

I have an e and have eliminated the cat and will probably chip it to get the power up some.

my 2.5L feels rediculously slow under 4K, and feels slow above 4K. My mom's 4cyl camry feels WAY faster than my e30, although my e30 has a torque-killing AWD system.

i think your car might need some service. My rallyx IX car is stock engine/drivetrain and it hauls ass. even my auto is wicked after 4k. and once the rebuild is done, she will be toit
