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.

318i-Stats???

I am looking to buy a 318i e30 year 89-91.

Does anyone know the stats for this model.

I am looking to find out the 0-60mph time (i think thats 0-100kmh) and the miles per gallon from this car. I live in England so petrol prices are crazy so im looking for something with some performance and deosnt cost too much to fill up!

Any other help in byuing this car would be greatly appreciated

The owner's manual has the stats. I can get that for you later. Mine currently gets an average of 37mpg. I pay around $2.70 per gallon of premium gas.
Take a look at my profile and photo gallery for other pictures of my car. you can send messages to my profile if you have any other questions. This is a wonderful car. Take care

Mein Auto: 1991 318i (E30, M42)
I get about 28-30 MPG with a good mix of highway and city driving. I think the 0-60 time is about 10.5 seconds. It's rather slow. Keep in mind the 90-91 318i has the M42 engine which has the "profile gasket issue" which would lead to mixing of oil and coolant. Basically, the gasket woud fail around 75,000 miles or so. Chances are the car you'd buy has already received the fix since it's likely to be more than 75K.

I love my 318. It's not fast off the line, but it can cruise nicely and offers just enough for around town city driving.
