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

Fuse, Trunk, Cpu code. Have some insight.

I have a 85' 325e coupe currently the cigarette lighter does not work but neither does the antenna on the trunk. I read that these 2 things share the same fuse and it is fuse #37 and there should be a 30A fuse in that spot, can anyone confirm this is my problem? Also the trunk is my next issue. There is some small amount of water coming in from somewhere on the very far left bottom of the trunk under the spare tire. (where you can just stick your hand in) Lastly I have a new cpu installed on my dash. Apparently it needs a code but dealers don't always give it to you. How should I go about getting a code for it. Thanks.

the water leak is the trunk seal, replace. cpu code is dealer only, provide few documents proving your car is yours, and they should give it to you.

thanks downhiller basically the seal under my front hood is gone it was so old it just came off.
I'm guessing the seal for the trunk is just as old. Would a registration of the car be enough? I also have a contract from the guy I bought it from.

If the registration shows you as the owner, yes, that's enough. If not, nope.
