    I asked the same question a few days ago and didn't get much of an answer.
    The 3.0ltr non evo M3 is no good as Payno suggests as its just a 5spd box but the 6spd Evo box will fit but its longer so you need the propshaft and depending which input flange you have you might also need the flange of an M3 diff. What I wasn't able to find out on here or on google was which clutch needs to be fitted be it M3 or 328 or in your case 325.

    I have a clutch and lightweight flywheel from an M3 evo in my 328i and it works a peach, if you look at all the aftermarket American flywheels and cluchs for sale on the interweb they all list for 323,325,328, m3 etc

    Thanks guys so from the replies im getting that:

    -The bell housing is the same PCD
    -The fly wheel PCD from the m3 will fit the 2.5

    but
    -the prop will need shortening
    -and il need to make a flange adaptor for the back of the gear box

    Anything else anyone can add?

    Im also guessing if i use the evo fly wheel and clutch and box i can use the evo starter too

    You wouldnt need to shorten your diff just buy an M3 6spd one and the flange you just need a again from am M3 IF it is different chances are it will be the same but worse case and its not you just need to get a puller to remove the flange and then replace it with yours.
