ANDD I have a little question for you guys! When my dad bought the car, the guy who sell it told us that the motor wasn't the original one, He told us that it was a BMW Z3 motor.. I'm just not sure about that.. I know that it's not a 318is, because one of my dad friend have one and his motor is smaller than mine.. But there's one thing I'm sure, this is not the original!





So if somebody know what it would be, it would help me a lot !! Thanks to you guys !

sorry if i gave you the impression your engine wasnt good, i wish my first e30 had that motor when i got it... THE M10 is the worst engine ever.. your motor has a timing chain and like i stated above about the same horsepower as a 325i with 2 less cylinders and way better MPG
