Don't spend the extra 10 grand for chrissakes. Either stick with the 325 or get an M3. Much more classy and without all the mods.

Ah, okay. That's exactly what happens with mine. I was worried because I started happening in early August. But if everybody's does this, it's good by me.

I had this sound, and thought it was the bearings too. It was the brake caliber rubbing against the hubs due to the pads being worn down. Get this fixed soon or you will have to replace the VERY...

Smolck changed his over from a 3.46 to a 3.07. But if it's only like 1-3 mpgs lost, it wouldn't bother me (obviously, if it gives my little 323 quite a bit more ooomph.)

Btw, I thought 330s came...

Ah, I'm about to have mine converted to a MT this summer, so I was wondering if I would have the extra oooomph.


If it only effects it like 1-3 mpgs, i certainly am not going to change it.
