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.

suspension bushings

I want to get new bushings for my '89, any recommendations on brands? I mostly use my car to get to school and fun on the weekends in the canyons in L.A. if that helps.

Concord Speedshop specializes in polyurethane bushings.. They race a spec e30 with their own bushings. My mechanic (https://www.madmotorsports.com/#2718) also uses them on his race cars.. I'm planning on buying only the suspension bushings from them and keep my motor mounts oem so that they ride quality is not too rough.. Concord's link.. http://www.condorspeedshop.com..

I would suggest Powerflex if you're looking for improved performance versus just stock replacement. I did front control arm bushings, sway bar bushings front/rear, camber adjustable trailing arm bushings out back, and rear carrier mounts. All Powerflex. The car feels a whole lot tighter and handles noticeably better just from the bushing change. And the car already had fresh offset E30 M3 rubber control arm bushings up front and the other stock bushings were actually in good shape.
