Mein Auto: 1990 325i convertible
What is the difference between a 325es and 325i?

My first e30 was a 1986 325es, which I drove until 1999. Sold it, bought a SUV, and then last year I found a 1990 325i convertible in mint condition and bought it. Now my daily driver.

My former car had the 12 button computer which used to tell me that it got 32 mpg. My "new" car gets 25mpg hwy, 22 city.

From my research, my 325es had a 2.7 liter motor, my new one has a 2.5 liter motor. Am really curious what the difference really is between the two cars?

Both are manual transmissions, both fly down the interstate with ease... and I put premium fuel in both.

Was the rear end different in the 325es? Geared significantly higher or something?
