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.

rebuilt engine

Aloha bimmerfest, I'm getting my 1989 325i engine rebuilt. Someone said that once it's done, it may blow out the rear end of my car because it'll be too powerful.

Of course I'm very concerned because I have already put in over $11,000 in the last year. Granted a lot of the parts were needing to be placed cuz they were old... brakes, tires, rotors, etc.

Can I get an up front answer? Mahalo

Hogwash. Tell "someone" they don't know what they're talking about. That's so absurd it's laughable,
