E21 Production Models


The 318 was highly succesful and in 1980 it was upgraded with a fuel injected engine. After the 320i was disbanded the 318i gave fans the possibility to choose between two fuel-injected engines. The 318i had very low fuel consumption rates and was regarded as a good compromise between economy and speed.
