230hp for the 330, 235 for dat zhp. The 325 makes under 185 hp but it doesn't feel as slow as it should. They both handle great and have very few problems. Like the e36 before it you need to check on the rear shock towers every now and then and it still has a waterpump that fails like clockwork at 65k miles.
Oh and plan on replacing the plastic covering the headlights. Expect to replace interior trim pieces. The nav screen will make you chuckle because it resembles an old Fisher Price toy. Some pixels from the radio will have surely burned out. It's crap anyway. Throw an Alpine in there and change the display to orange and you are good to go plus you will add bluetooth and can still use the steering wheel mounted controls .
If the wheels it comes with are shitty then make those your winter wheels and throw some blizzacks on them. Find zhp wheels from the forums and make those your everyday wheels
