I don't think it's nice, you laughing.

The iS has sport seats, bigger front lip, trunk spoiler, and a limited slip differential. I also believe it came with sportier shocks standard.

Most people break off the front lips and they get replaced with the standard i lip.

89-91 has the plastic bumpers.

I think the IS also has shorter gearing overall.

I'm pretty sure that is just because of the diff. As far as I am aware, and what I've heard, the gearboxes are identical. I could be wrong though.

Most likely, just saying its overall as opposed to just one or two gears.

Yeah, the E30 and E36 coupes are designated as "is" models (e.g. 328is). Not all ads will necessarily make the distinction, though, so it's good to just search for 325, or 3-series, for example.


No theyre not. The S in the IS means its the "sports" model which generally meant different gearing and suspension stuff. Youre thinking of CI which appeared on the e46 coupes. The e30 and e36 coupes were just I unless they were the sports model.
