Subject: Re: Diff between 325is, es, ix, and ic ??
I have no ide about US models, but I have never found any "c" in the
cabriotets manual. I was told that the US "s" model was a 2 door car with
front and rear spoilers, recaro etc. I found out that this must be the M
model in Europe. Front spoiler 82119403142 & rear spoiler 51712260322.
E.g. 325iM, 535iM. The "s" model in Europe has a factory tuned engine and
look like an ordinary "i" model and can have 4-doors. Also we can not get
an "e" model here in Europe. 2-door cars in Europe is called cupes and
don't have a variable for the 3-series.
Possibly why you can't buy a 321 hp M3/Z3 or 2-400+ hp Alpina in the US?
Confused that is the word!!! :-D Too many variables & laws.
'97 BMW E-36 320iA
'88 BMW E-30 Alpina B6 (based on 320i "s" or was it a "C"??? )
'91 BMW E-34 (X-car)
