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.

Hard cold start but easy when warmed up

The car takes awhile to start when cold, and idles high, 1000 rpm. But when the engine is warmed up the car starts instantly. Any suggestions? Almost everything on this car is new/remanufactured? Im going to check the fuel mixture when i get back from traveling.

I used to have this problem, was fixed when I upgraded to 19# injectors. As long as it starts though, I'm not sure if going after it is worth the effort.

The E30 is what all actual driving enthusiasts are after. It's an unpretentious machine, quietly capable of spectacular feats of handling. It's light, simple design is rugged enough to run against $400k rally cars, but on the street it' communicative chassis delights even the most disinterested driver. It really is one of the world's ultimate driving machines
