    Do they fit the likes of 325/328's?

    essentially but also bare in mind you'll probably need aftermarket management to run it. also you'll be going from one TB to 6 individually controlled TB's. plus you have to factor in the MAF (not really that difficult though). also the oil filter housing has to move, the injectors would'nt be at the right angle etc etc

    So in other words no they aint a direct fit.

    no

    but that said there are people that have fitted them, its just a lot of work. i dont think the ports line up either thinking about it.

    I had a very brief look at fitting some to my 328 as I had a set of TB 's lying around. It's definitely possible but is a fair bit of work for all the reasons outlined above.

    The other option would be to speak to somebody like http://www.boggbros.co.uk/index.html .
