318i power

oddball question: which would have more power out of a '96 318iS (1900cc), or 2001 318i (also 1900), same? or does the newer model have better weight distribution etc...? (i currently own the 96 model but
might be getting something newer soon).

Your 318iS has an M44 16 valve engine. A UK 318i saloon/touring/convertible is 8 valve and has nearer 120. Some foreign markets use the M44 in all 318s.

You asked about power : 120 = 120 horsepower....
