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.

84 318i Not Running, Fuel Pump

Looking at picking up an 84 318i on the cheap locally. The owner says the fuel pump went, and it won't run anymore.

I am just looking for some general answers here, so I will make it quick. Does this sound normal for 200k? Or are there more major things wrong here that I should worry about?

for some reason i found that a faulty sender unit to the gauge cluster was the cause of my fuel pump not working in my POS car, so have a look at that if you find your pump to be fine
