God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Vibrations when shutting off

Okay, on my 1985 325e, I get a very short but very intense vibration when I shut the engine off. What I am assuming is the exhaust pipe rattles because of this every time I shut down my car. I also get the same sort of vibrations when I start my car on a cold morning. These vibrations are less intense, but last until the engine temperature rises. I am thinking maybe engine mounts, or maybe something is gummed up. As far as the cold start, is that the cold start valve needing replacement? I really am at a loss, so any help is greatly appreciated.

Yes engine mounts would be a great idea to replace, my old 325e did that rattle and I replaced the mounts and it went away but while I was under the car I replaced the tranny mounts too and the rear end diff mount. U can never go wrong by replacing mounts that look worn. Hope this helps
