I'm guessing that the 325es and the 325is are included with the 325e and 325i?

oh, and the best term to describe E30's? Ubiquitous.

'86 325es (TURTL3): PJ peetsa hawler
'87 535is (BADWATER): almost done... really.
'86 325e (GRN HLL): DD/show/rocket

Damn.... I never realized the mass amounts of sheet metal this country consumes on a yearly basis! That's amazing. Imagine how many Ford Escorts and Toyota Corrollas there are running around out there: . I guess the M3's are fairly rare comparitivly speaking!

Naturally aspirated or turbocharged diesel used in the E30 3 Series 324td. (never sold in the usa) It's an inline 6 cylinder 2.4-liter diesel. Like the base model BMW M20, the M21 engine has a single overhead camshaft, 2 valves per cylinder and a timing belt. In the usa these motors were found in the the 5 series 524td models.

P.S. These provide the highly sought after cast turbo manifold that people use on the M20...
