after owning a 325 (A/T) and currently a ZHP (M/T ), i realized that the 325 is somewhat lazy going from to 60, everything beyond that feels like butter! at higher speeds it pulls faster in comparison to lower speeds. i was able to keep up easily with 328 on higher speeds.
as for the ZHP...
good luck with ur new bimmer OP
