i found no listing for 1990 325is in the TIS or ETK. does it exist?

the closest were (for 1990):
325i (M20), 325ix (M20), 320is (S14)
:confused

i thought they made 325is in 1990. i know they didnt in 1991 though. but all E30 325i/is/iC's had M20B25 engines. the M50's began in the E36 or 91 e34's

m20b25 .... the "b25" representing the 2.5L displacment (which is why the 2.7 liter ETA engine is an m20b27)

:yawn

umm.. i saw an add for a 1990 325is forsale, so I called.

m20b25 .... the "b25" representing the 2.5L displacment (which is why the 2.7 liter ETA engine is an m20b27)

So are there any #'s or markings on the engine to show that it is the M20B25?

thanks for your help guys. :bow

you can easily tell by looking at it if its a M20b25, but that doesnt mean its an 'iS'. look for things like basketweave wheels, sport seats, rear spoiler, and iS front lip to tell if its an iS

There was no 325is in 1991. You could get a 325i with the sport package though (everything that effectively made it an "is"). :gulp

(also, the E36 started in 1992)
