Subject: <E30> difference between "e" and "es"
I have an '86 325es and I know the differences the "es" had because Ron
Stygar (thanks, Ron!) mailed me copies of the original sales brochure,
since I am not the original owner.
The "es" was only available as a 2-door. It had a limited slip diff,
revised springs and shocks with 20% stiffer progressive rate springs and
approximately 20% softer Bilstein shocks as OE, same alloys as the
other E30's (6 x 14 4-bolt turbine-style) between '84 and '91 (except 'is
and M3), sport seats in cloth or leatherette, power sunroof, 6-speaker
premium sound system, 3-spoke "M" leather steering wheel, leather shift boot
and knob, a chin spoiler with integrated fogs and brake cooling ducts, and a
small trunk lip spoiler. Everything else was the same as an "e."
I think I got all that right (from memory, may be slight discrepancies).
Hope this helps out whoever wanted to know!
