The E30 generation BMW 3-series was produced from 1983 through 1994 in various shapes, sizes, and configurations. The slow 318i was a fuel saver, the inline-6 powered 325i was a mixture of quick and smooth, and the 4-cylinder powered M3 was a riot. Today’s E30 started as a basic 325i, but has been given the engine from an E36 BMW M3 and has the CA smog certificate and BAR sticker to prove it. Find this 1985 BMW 325i offered for $17,900 in Fremont, CA via craigslist.
