I've been told that my car is rare, and i'm not sure.
It's a 1984 325e, but has two "M's" on it. BBS 16" wheels, front and
rear cowlings and side ground effects (i think is what they're called)
driving lights, and a black rubber spoiler.
I've been told it's rare, first of the "M" series, and i've been told
that somebody just stuck that "M" on there ! What say you BMW fans ?
If you could indulg me for a second, with apologies in advance....
There are no special M cars. There are cars with M-Technic accessories, but
none of these ever bore an M badge from factory. It is an abomination to
apply an M badge to a 325e -- e=eta, which means less power, more torque,
4500rpm redline instead of 6800, reduced emmissions. Hardly an M car.
An E30 M3 has flared fenders, a BMW Motorsport 4-cylinder engine, and 5-lug
wheels, among many other differences. There are no other versions on the
The M badges have just been stuck on, it is not a M3. If it was an M3
it would not be called a 325e it would be called an M3. If it was an M3
on the engine it would have "M Power" written on it. If it was an M3, I
think, you'd know about it, as it would have cost you a lot, lot more
than a 325 and would be a lot, lot faster and your insurance would be a
lot, lot higher. It would also say "M3" on the registration
certificate, service history, etc.
