The BMW 316 was a variant of the E30 3 Series that was introduced for the 1983 model year. The 316 was powered by BMW's M10B18 engine, which was a carbureted inline four unit. This 1.8L engine generated 89hp, which drove the rear wheels via manual and automatic transmission options. These cars were offered in sedan, coupe, convertible, and touring (station wagon) body styles. Production of the BMW 316 lasted until 1987, when it was replaced by the fuel-injected E30 BMW 316i.
