Interesting E30 Video

This might be a repost... I thought this was well done.

I agree it does say 318, maybe engine swapped????

It sounds like an m20 and not an m42.

I guess over there they like rebadge their cars as a lower model. Over here people like to rebadge their cars as M cars. In my opinion the former is a better idea.
