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.
I would like to ask any of you E30 owners if you have ever come across a 50 pound weight in the trunk of your 325i/ I have pics and I will post them. I was thinking that it is for counter weight to offset the weight of the driver. but that is 50 pounds that I would like to get rid of unless there is a very good reason to keep it. it was on the passenger side of the trunk, where some people put their car battery. I hope someone is familiar with this part and can let me know what the deal is...
weight is useless, get rid of and use it as a paper wieght.
that is pretty fucked up though
