Initially, the North American-market BMW E30 3-Series could be purchased with four-cylinder power, just like its E21 320i predecessor; meanwhile, the rest of the world could buy E30s with a 2.0- and 2.3-liter straight-sixes. This changed for the 1985 model year, when North American BMW shoppers could get their 3-Series cars with 2.5-liter sixes. This television advertisement shows a parade of earlier models (starting with the 2002, disappointingly, rather than the Isetta) driving atop a cloud, followed by a trio of six-cylinder E30s exploding out of a desert dust storm.
