And some info about the E30 BMW 318i:

The BMW E30 is an entry-level luxury car which was produced by BMW from 1982 to 1994. The initial models used the coupe(two-door sedan) body style. Four-door sedan models were introduced in 1983, convertibles were introduced in 1985 and estate(“Touring”) models were introduced in 1987. The E36 replaced the E30 coupe models in 1990, with other E30 body styles being phased out of production until the final E30 model, a Touring, was produced in 1994.
The E30 was the first 3 Series to be available in wagon and four-door sedan body styles. It was also the first 3 Series to offer a diesel engine, and all-wheel drive was introduced to the 3 Series range with the 325iX model. The BMW Z1 roadster was based on the E30 platform.
The first BMW M3 was built on the E30 platform. The E30 M3 is powered by the high-revving BMW S14 four-cylinder petrol engine, which produced 175 kW (235 hp) in its final European-only iteration.

  1. 318i’s were sold only in 84′ and 85′ in the US but reintroduced after a facelift for the 91′ model year. This car is <88' you can tell by the pre-facelift tail lights. It belongs to a member of r3v the e30 forum, interesting car, the owner swapped out the original 103hp m10b18 for a 208hp m30b35 from an e32 735il along with euro bumpers, headlights and a few other goodies like enkei 92's and 325e rear disks. Great build thread, owner is glnr13.
