Hay guys, I just got this car today. It's coupe, and I'm wondering if you can give me some specs on this thing...
Thanks.

It looks just like this, but with crome rims.

if it looks EXACTLY like the one in the pic, then it's either an '86 or '87 325es... but i'm guessing since he said 325, it doesn't have that airdam or rear deck spoiler

well it's not neccesarily the 325es. It could be 325is, depending on the year. If it has a redline at 5000, then it's the 325es. But if the redline is higher (6000-7000) then it's the 325is. The "is" is the more powerful engine with about 171 hp as opposed to the 121 hp.

i'll say it again... if it looks EXACTLY like the one in the pic, then it's a 325eS... not 325, not 325e, not 325i.... but a 325eS... the car in the pic has the eS airdam. the eS was produced in '86 as well as early '87 before it was dropped from production mid-year.. and from the looks of his username, i'm gonna put my money on it being an '86 :P

now if it doen't have that airdam, then it could be a 325e, 325, or even 325i... but if it's an '86 like i'm thinking from his username, then it's not a 325i, since they didn't come into production untill '87.. and it wouldn't be a 318i either, since they also weren't being produced in '86



again... http://www.strictlyeta.net ... has a shiteload of great info on all US e30's
