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.

They're like 25 bucks with free shipping. It wouldn't hurt to try.

Make sure you look at your computer to determine which chip you need. The chips are based on the ECU number and not only the BMW model number.
