1984, so I guess technically, they were released in fall of '83, being a 1984 model year.

no problems really...the 84 is probably the most reliable e30...the 86/87's seem to have the most problems..

if your were to swap over from a 1.8 to a 2.5 would u have to change the springs as well if they were after market ?

You should. The weight difference is huge.

A lot you should change. Talk to Jase, he's been doing it since I can remember. :D

Seriously, it's a lot easier/cheaper (cheaper unless you have enough spare time and technical knowledge to do it all yourself) to just buy an 87-91 325i/is and live happily ever after.
