    Not sure to be honest mate.
    Have a look on realoem and see if the the part numbers for the two systems are the same


    Hopefully one of our 320 owners can chime in!

    Not many manufacturers include manifolds with their exhaust systems.

    IIRC one of the only manufacturers that covers an extremely wide range of vehicles, including manifolds is Supersprint

    Most manufactures do cat back... sometimes they'll do a de-cat pipe also.

    If you want more power for the time being you could fit a second hand 2.5 exahust inc manifolds until you get a better one.

    also swapping the inlet manifold for one from a 2.5 will improve the power as well because it is more free flowing

    Yes mate, 325i exhaust manifolds should bolt straight on and because there is two they are more free flowing and let the gases out faster and increase power. Its the same with the exhaust becuase it has twin pipes.

    The 325i inlet manifold lets more air flow into the engine and also increases the power and it can be up to 15bhp more in some cases with both mods.

    A 325i inlet manifold will increase the power on a 320, 323 and a 328 because it is the most free flowing of the inlet manifolds.

    Hope this helps
