3-Series (E21, E30)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1975-1983 and 1984-1991 line. Specific models: BMW 315, BMW 316, BMW 318, BMW 318i, BMW 320/4, BMW 320i, BMW 320/6, BMW 323i, BMW 320i. E30 Family models include: BMW 325e, BMW 325i, BMW 325is, BMW 325ix.
The 325e tends to be a durable model, since the engine is tuned more for economy than for performance. What year? Has the timing belt been recently changed along with water pump? Have a look in the E21/E30 section, and try a search!
thanks man, i do want to go for performance with this car so i hear that in order to do so, a few parts from the "i" motor can be swapped in. No the water pump/timing belt have not been changed from what i know and it has 142k on it so that will need to be replaced at some point. its a 1984
