I believe it's 4 cyl vs. 6 cyl, not touring vs. other E30. Check RealOEM. I think you will see that tourings with M20 engines have the same (larger) strut housings as USA cars. The 4 cyl tourings...

German Autowerks Atlanta was at The Vintage. The owner (Jeff) was a cool guy and seems passionate about BMWs and E30s. He commutes 130 miles every day in a sweet Touring with s5x swap.

I know this is heresy on a BMW board, but if they plan to own the vehicle for 10 years, the "worries" and cost of ownership will be a lot less with the Jap brands.

That's if they don't mind...

I was asking. This 91 calypso cabrio has metal bumpers and the other 91 white cabrio on BAT has plastic bumpers. I thought all E30s had plastic bumpers by 91.

I always thought cabrios got plastic bumpers by 1991. Is this a "learn something new today moment?"

As far as I know, the touring is the same as the 4-door sedan from the B-pillars forward. One way to check is to cross-reference body patch-panels on realOEM.

What about M42? Seems about as easy as possible for a more modern 4.

My first Bimmer was a 92 318i vert. The M42 + 5-sp was FUN!
