(I don't think Automobile was around that long ago.)

I know when I was looking for a 325i I found a review in Car&Driver magazine. Don't know if they reviewed the iS or just the i though.

Go to a public library, get a few issues of C&D from ~'88,'89 and browse them -
every few months there is a page that lists all the cars tested in the last year including when each car was tested. Then get that months issue of the magazine. Most libraries have a reference section with stuff going *way* back.

BTW, I think starting in '87 3ers had ABS, starting in '90 they had an airbag. In '89 the bumper changed from chrome to body coloured. Wheels for S package are same from '87 on ( BBS basketweave pain in the ass to clean ). S package also had power everything, leather recaro style sport seats, S suspension, upgraded stereo (8 speaker vs.4) S package also had LSD, smaller 3 spoke steering wheel.

hope this helps
