    The 3.2 exhaust would be slightly better, as that already has holes for the lambda sensors in the right places.
    Getting cams reground would probably be cheaper, and you'd be able to get something more sporty than the US M3 spec.

    if you are looking at getting the most from your car then you would be better off changing the engine to a 328i 1st

    you can get up to 250bhp with out the need for us cams with the mods you are going to do with loads of lower down torque

    on the 323 you would see about 215-220bhp

    just a quick update on the car this maybe is not the place for doing it but aw well m3 evo manifolds got with lambas and all on them for £80 think i robbed him lol.

    going on friday to lift the middle and rear section. the bbs wheels are now sold m3 kit got need to get it sprayed.

    now back to the exhaust anyone with tips for me while fiting this to my 323i would be good as i have been thinking this has 2 lambas and the 323 has one i think. will i have to wire them in a specal way?

    Excellent deal on the manifolds

    The 323i has two lambda's too, one in each exhaust manifold bank.

    more good news got myself the rest of the m3 exhaust system also for £80 not so bad at this lol. only prob its of a 3.0 so it has the holes for the lamba behind the cat so will have to blank them of. all gaskets are ordered maybe would need a few more hangers.

    thou will see when am fiting there should be enuf with what i have lieing about.

    will get to fiting every thing next week maybe i should start a build thread lol. as exhaust will be going on m50 manifold ,lsd ect.

    missions for next payday will include geting ginuine motorsport with good tyres trying to find acs mirrors in scrap yards and geting the m3 bumpers painted>

    Fair play you have got some absolute bargains there

    I don't know about fitting an M3 exhaust sorry but there should be plenty of links etc.

    Good luck with your hunting too and let us know how you get on.
