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 was just reading a 1985 August "Popular Science" article testing the 325e 5 speed, Mercedes 190E and Caddy Cimarron V6. The 325e was the fastest car on test, 0-60 in 9.4 seconds, although Car & Driver got 8.4 . B)
Torque is the eta motor's strong suit, which works well in the light e30. I saw a European report that put the e30 325i at 0-60 in 7.4 seconds so the 325e isn't that far behind comparing stock cars.
