lol it's really like 2.645 liters or something. So It really should have been a 327 or 326. But noooo BMW was like "325EEEEEEEEEEE"

I know the m20b27 "e" motor is 2.7ish. It was just weird hearing them say 326e in the first video.

I just figure the eta wasn't released at the time of press. so maybe it was planned to be a 326e and they changed their mind.

I was figuring the same thing. What's weird though is in all the reading I've ever done about e30's (and BMW's in general) I've never seen any mention of a 326e anywhere until that video. I figured I would have run into at least 1 mention somewhere.

Some interesting related videos to those posted. I want an AMC Eagle now! lol

I guess I never pushed the lever DOWN before. And now I'm wishing I didn't do it yesterday. On my way home the damn chime was going off the entire way, and again to work this morning. Unless I'm making a hard left and all of my weight shifts on the seat. Thinking maybe I shorted out the seatbelt sensor wire when I moved the seat down. Annoying AF!

Wow the vert vid is pretty sexist. Saying that the top takes too much muscle to open so women can't do it.

BTW you forgot to include this one...
