E91 BMW M3 Touring project

BMW’s M division is responsible for some very aggressive Bimmers out there on the streets. And while they handle a lot of models of the German car maker, not all get the same attention.

Moving on, the seller also mentions that under the hood, the 1982 BMW 320i has a M35 3.5 liter, big valve straight six cylinder engine.

Who names their car? For starters, those that hold it dear; those who consider their vehicle more than just a means of getting from point A to point B.
