I realize this may already be covered, but... is there an idiot's guide to decoding
all of the model numbers (like what is the difference between a 318i and a 318is,
or a 325e, 325es, 325i, 325ic, 325c... I don't know if those even exist, I just
tried to WAG the numbers from the general pattern, assuming there's a pattern,
which I haven't decoded yet)?
I just bought a 1991 318i 5 speed 4 door, and have a lot to learn.
BTW, there is an old post in this thread thread with a link to a how to article on aftermarket
stereo installs... the link didn't work - is there a mirror of it anywhere else, or does someone
have it saved to hard drive to upload it?
I will read and search more carefully eventually, but I'm feeling really crummy
this afternoon and having a hard time concentrating (I don't even have enough
energy to be excited about buying a new car). At least I felt better this morning
when I went to look at cars (which is a long story).
