The Many Guises of the BMW 325i

BMW 325i, 325is and the 325ix
1985 to 1993

Three variants of the second generation 3 series BMW 325i range were made available in South Africa. These were:

  • The 325i which was manufactured and sold between 1985-1993
  • The 325is which was manufactured and sold between 1987-1990
  • And the 325ix which was manufactured and sold between 1985-1991

In South Africa, only the coupes and sedans were built at the BMW Rosslyn Plant in Gauteng.

Did You Know? In 1990 a 2.7 litre 325iS was created by BMW South Africa as a response to the introduction of the Opel Kadett 2 litre and later the Opel Kadett 16V SuperBoss. A later version of this car were built with a Alpina-fettled, 2.7 litre M20 engine which produced a very impressive 145 kW. This 325iS successfully competed in the Group N production car racing events of the time and won the 20 of the 24 Group N Class A races in 1993 to clinch the title.
