    Other than that it could of been; 323, 325, 328 or 330. So take your pick...

    My other car is a 328i with a 5 speed. They are no slouches up top, and no beast either. When the above cars are autos, there is a huge difference. When I bring the 328i in for scheduled maintenance the dealer usually gives me a slush box loaner, and even the 330 feels ALOT more sluggish than the 328 with a manual.
    You wouldn't be able to tell if it's a 318 sedan is what I meant.

    if you had those mods, then you should beat any bmw other than an M. the wrx is pretty even with the 330 stock until 65. I would think that uppipe/downpipe would give you enough exta juice to beat him

    upto 65 being the key word. he started the race at 65mph in 4th gear... and at these speeds a 330i would be real close with him and the 330 would end up winning especially in MT form.. a 328i MT would be a pretty close race, but the edge going to the rex cuz of his mods, and a 325i would lose, which is why i said 325i was more than likely the car.

    actually you can tell a E36 318 sedan from the E36 325 and 328. The 318 is the only one with the single exhaust exit.

    Oops I always associate 3 with M3 for some reason , I guess it is because the other versions aren't worth the effort.
