The original BMW 3-series might have been the E21 generation sold in North America (1977 through 1982) but the one that put the BMW 3-series on the map was the E30 built from 1982 through 1993. Power came from a variety of overhead cam inline-4 and inline-6 engines, and suspension was MacPherson struts up from and semi-trailing arm out back.
