About BMW 323i
The BMW 323i is offered in a wide variety of configurations and body styles, all of which are powered by the PULP fuel type (s). It has an estimated fuel consumption beginning at 9.1 liters per one hundred kilometers for the Sedan / PULP configuration for the most recent year that the model was manufactured. The BMW 323i comes with a variety of wheel and tire combinations to choose from. When it comes to tyres, these can range anywhere from 225×45 R17 for sedans in 2012 to 17×8 inches in diameter for the wheels. The BMW 323i Sedan, Wagon, and Coupe all have different dimensions because their sizes change depending on the year of manufacture and the trim level. The most recent iteration of the BMW 323i is rated for a maximum trailer weight of 1700 kilograms when properly equipped.
After the E21 was first introduced in 1977, the 323i was considered to be the flagship model of the series. It is propelled by a six-cylinder engine that has a displacement of 2.3 liters and is equipped with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection. It takes 8.7 seconds to reach 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour), and it has a maximum speed of 190 kilometers per hour (118 mph). The overhanging front and rear bodywork was kept to a minimum thanks to the vehicle’s wheelbase, which measured 2.6 meters (102 inches) in length. At the front of the vehicle, the track measured 1,364 millimeters (53.7 inches), and at the back, it measured 1,377 millimeters (54.2 inches).
At the front, the suspension featured rack-and-pinion steering and a MacPherson strut, while at the rear, an independent semi-trailing arm type suspension was used.
The design of the rear suspension causes camber changes, which can lead to “snap oversteer” when the vehicle is pushed to its handling limits. The front wheels were equipped with power assisted disc brakes, whereas the rear wheels were equipped with drum brakes (except the 323i model which had discs all round). Upon its initial release, the E21 was offered in three distinct configurations: the 316 (1.6-liter), the 318 (1.8-liter), and the 320 (2.0-liter) all featured different displacements of the BMW M10 four-cylinder engine. In order to differentiate the 316 and 318 models from the 320 model, which featured dual headlights, the 316 model only featured a single headlight.
At the tail end of 1975, BMW released the 320i with a fuel-injection system. It comes standard with a four-cylinder M10 engine equipped with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection; additionally, a limited slip differential could be purchased as an add-on.
