1975-1983 BMW 3-Series (E21) specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
The BMW 3-Series became the performance saloon to beat the moment it first exploded onto the market in 1975. Four-cylinder M10 powered versions weren’t quick, but were dependable. However, the six-cylinder cars with fuel injection were electrifying, especially in the wet. Build quality was impeccable, and the interior ergonomics were superb, making this a very satisfying car to own. Again, corrosion has been a constant factor, meaning survival rate is low – although many 323is ended up doing some inadvertent off-roading. Rare now, and prices are on the up.
