E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

ha...They are pretty close to minilites! They were 15" Konig Rewinds...you can get a set for around $400. One of the tires blew on the road, so I traded my mechanic the four wheels and worn tires for 4 basketweaves, good caps, and 1000 mile tires. I came out pretty good. He just wanted to use the Konigs for his 2002.

Fast too. So lightweight, mid engine. There was one model that was supposed to turn something like 350whp from a 1.4! Maxi 5 or something like that. I thought they would've been three lug rims like the old regular 5's.
