325i differences from 1989 to 1990

Aloha Bimmerfest Family and Happy New Year, Just wanting to find out what the differences are from the 1989 (mine) and 1990 model, as I'm thinking of replacing some parts, which I'd be buying from a local parts place. One major one item: are the rims/wheels different? If you know of a place where I can view a listing of changes that would be great.

Mahalo, Laurel

Click "Archive" to bring up a list of older models (including the E30) click on E30, then go through the drop-down choices to put in your car's information. Alternately, you can put the last seven digits of your serial number in the SN search box and the web page will automatically come up with all the parts used in your car.

Open another browser and go to Realoem. Input the same info except enter a late 1989 build date (1990 Y/M) Compare the results.

Or to really save you some time...there is very little to no difference between the '89 and '90 Y/M E30s.

Mahalo for the info... I may check out a few items per your suggestion. One more thing... Just by looking at the two years, I'm pretty sure the rims are the same... right?
