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.

Looking to buy a e30 what's the best year and Model? I'm thinking about building a turbo e30. Should I avoid 325e?

Get a 325e and do a 325i head swap so you still get the long stroke and the mote torque from the e block but the i head gives you more power

I thought it also had stiffer suspension and a different rear axle ratio.
