1984 BMW 3 Series 325e 2.7L Inline-6 from North America
A reliable and cheap sporty sedan with a tip of the hat to fuel economy
Valve stem oil seals.
Idle control valve.
The vehicles handling is superb.
The brakes slow the vehicle down very quickly.
Acceleration is somewhat tepid although that can be fixed easily and cheaply.
This is a reliable car, but it is somewhat maintenance intensive. Perfect vehicle for a person that is mechanically inclined, as I would suggest you do all the work on it yourself. Its much cheaper that way and the car is very simple to work on anyway.
Valve adjustments need to be performed approximately every 30,000 miles.
Problem areas with these vehicles are... rear sub frame bushings, rear shock tower mounts, control arm bushings, drive shaft flex disc, and control arm ball joints.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
