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.

What is the difference ...

I'm sure this has been answered before but what is the difference between a 325i and a 325iS ?

Not 100% sure about US spec, but in Aus and UK it's basically an options pack. So the 325iS came with the boxes already ticked for M-sport suspension, seats, steering wheel, body kit, wheels, etc. Maybe LSD too? I'm not sure if that was standard on the iS or still optional.

^ Early US models had the best spoiler ever, lates had the lip.

IIRC no upgraded suspension tuning for US cars, but they did have the limited slip (along with everything else already mentioned).
