(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
