3 liter engine ?s

i have posted on the bmwcca forum and sent an email to roundel mag so far no help. i have an 06 325 i wanted an 04 m3 but found this 325 w/ manual and sport package it is newer and i got good financing thru bmw. i was wondering since most bmws 06 and newer have the 3.0, is it the same engine as mine and if so what gives the others more power. can i swap parts from the other cars or am i stuck with aftermarket upgrades. i like the car but the acceleration is lacking and since the 335 there arent many aftermarket options for the 325

The E90 325 is a 3.0 and it is basically the same engine as the 300 but it has a different intake.

To convert it to a 330 you would need a new intake and software at minimum. I'm sure there is much discussion about it, so the info is probably available on the web.
