Fast Facts:
  • The E30 was designed by the German car designer Claus Luthe. He is regarded as one of the most important and influential European car designers of the modern era
  • Interiors of these cars are incredibly well-built. Unlike many European cars at the time, the E30 didn’t use a foam-backed headliner, which was known for losing adhesion and sagging due to disintegrating foam. The same can be said for the door panels
  • To help the E30 feel “roomier” inside, BMW installed a highly compact semi-trailing arm suspension in the rear. This setup allowed for excellent cabin and trunk space
  • While the rear trailing arm suspension was compact, it resulted in dynamic camber and toe changes. This contributed to a loss of rear grip, leading to the “tail happy” handling this car is well known for
  • In general, semi-trailing arms are notorious for dynamic toe and camber changes as the wheels move up and down during hard cornering. This creates bump steer and a loss of rear grip. The “semi” refers to the sweep angle of the arm, which is 15 degrees in the E30 (a pure trailing arm would be zero degrees). Essentially, the wheels see increased negative camber as the trailing arm moves up during compression (suspension gets loaded during hard cornering). On the contrary, the wheels toe in and gain positive camber as they are unloaded
  • This isn’t to say the E30 can’t handle – it just makes it less predictable around a racetrack compared to most double wishbone setups
Key Model Year Changes:
  • First year of the plastic body-colored bumpers, replacing the bulky aluminum bumpers from ’88 and prior
  • Final year of no airbags
  • Final year of the ellipsoid headlights. 1990 MY switched to sealed beams
  • For the coupes, this was the final year for the pop-out side rear windows. 1990 MY switched to sealed windows
  • First year of the sealed rear window
  • Final year of the solid steering column, as well as the one-piece knee bolster
