325e is a 2.7L I-6 with 121hp and 172ft/lbs torque but with just a TMS chip it will be around 143hp and 196ft/lbs torque

good car with AWESOME low end torque and long gears but with a 4600 RPM redline but after chip 5300rpm redline...

Great low end power and will easily smoke most anything off the line yet very dependable

the chip is around $200 so if you drive it and arent satisfied dont worry the chip makes a HUGGGGE difference

BTW the E is greek for ETA (economic) so plan for 26-30mpg :P

damn thats a lot of torque.
well its a 85 with 187k miles. black in color. two door coupe. and manual. dont know the condition yet, still gotto go check it out. you guys think its a good deal?
and if i get this car its going to be daily driven and im going to start drifting with it. that torque might be real good for breakin the rears loose.
oh yeah that chip seems bad ass too.

187,000 miles?
Not that an E30 wouldn't last twice that long, but I think that warrants at the very least a CarFax, and I would expect the motor to have had moderate maintenance at least once. Just food for thought.

I'm extremely happy with mine.
I'd recommend the cars to anyone who can drive them.

I don't know how old or experienced you are, but just by the sound of your automotive interests, I'd guess you're still a teenager or so.

Don't go buying a car to race on the streets, or even worse, drift, without a serious understanding of what you're doing and how the car's going to behave. An E30 is a lot more predictable than a Nissan 240, and probably a little better in a corner than a Corolla, despite the extra couple hundred pounds. But whatever you get, stay safe.

From smeone who knows - a 325e isn't exaclty fast.
So that may not be what you're after.
