    Is it important if it'll 'beat' it? Are you really going to be racing everywhere you go? Surely looks, comfort, condition, insurance and running costs are more important.

    Don't think it will. When the 2.2 Coupe came out, the 328 was only 0.2 seconds faster around the test track used by one of the magazines.

    I can only suggest you drive both and see what you prefer. The 3 series BMWs of that era (E36 I think) had a horrible plastic interior.

    A 528 would be a better bet over both, or you could try and find one of the lovely original 535 Sports.

    Vectra 2.5 (not the 2.6) GSi? Too many doors, but a great car.

    Depends what you want mate but i know thet a standard gsi is quicker than a 328 not by a great deal though so i guess that a coupe would be about the same or slightly quicker.
    Mk4 GSi, VXR Engine/gearbox, quaife LSD, Custom FMIC & Pipework, Piper 3" Ex, CS Garett turbo/manifold, 342bhp 365lbft - Sold replaced by 2007 RS4 Avant -also looking for spec blue mk3 ph1 GSI

    surly the 328 would kill a coupe from say 80-140 if the situation ever came

    Highly unlikely - @80mph in a coupe you'll be doing around 3 1/2K Rpm in 5th

    ~4000rpm - this is where the turbo re-boosts on the z20let - then it gets really fast.

    Also coupe is significantly more aerodynamic - so at that speed - the coupe will slip away from the 328.
    Me run tings.... not tings run me!
