If I recall, the last US E21s were in the spring of 1983. They were transitioning to the E30 318i. So the October 1983 build date might not be correct. Not sure how much that matters after all...

I guarantee the BMW loans for my business, but they're not on my recent TransUnion report. No leases for us - too many miles. My wife's loan shows up because the car is in both our names.
