find one and race it........the only way to find out:) but i would think you would have a very slight chance:(

If the 328 is a stick, he might have a slight edge if driven perfectly since you're an E-shift. If your car was a 5-spd, you could potentially take him with the mods you have

Edit: Just noticed it's a 2008 328, I don't think you should race for money/ pink slips/ girlfriends.

Thanks guys i will let you know next week. My friend just getting BMW 328 next week and we'll see. Before that I'm planing to install cam gear... Does it make much difference if yes which one should I buy?

the 330i is faster right? i raced a 330i and barely took him. gonna catch crap for saying that but...it was a 2006 i believe. i have the upgrades i have in my sig. you are probably adding around the same hp but you have an auto. if the 328 is considerably slower(.5 secs to 60) then yeah. shouldnt've posted this huh? i think the cam gear would do it. you have to find someone that knows more about bmw's

I raced an 03-04 330ci(2dr E46) and stayed side by side. But it was a friend of mine and we did it for fun. I raced his 323ci and walked on him when I was stock.

Now he won't race me at all when we're on the interstate now that I'm built and boosted... :confused: :confused: :confused:

I say race him, what's the worst that'll happen? You lose!? big whoop

edit: Shouldn't this be in the race/the street forum?

i dont know about the 330 but you can beat the 02-05 325.....i beat an 05 325 and a 03 330....it just depends on how you drive...i was side by side with the 330 though...but mines is stock with only AEM intake...

stock is300 wont lose too much against against 328... i say you will win by a tiny bit. assuming both of you shift perfectly.

I think you misread, a 335 is IS350 territory, actually faster if driven properly. Guys on my BMW board ran low to flat 14s with their 330s, which have open diffs. Some of the stories I read on here make me think how competent the other driver was. I beat a TL, but did get pulled on by my friend's 328. It all depends on the driver. (the 328 pulled on me with authority while the TL kid was as old as half of the kids on this site and when I tried explaining the "feather the clutch, modulate the throttle" concept, he looked at me like I was Jesus)
