Type I has a diffenent hood, when you bought a 6cilinder, you got a 'bulb' on the hood.
Nowadays, these hoods are very rare.


Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

Right. Left is type 1 but 6-cyl hood. Right is type 2 all engines.

Since my E12 was originally a 520 4-cyl the hood was almost like the left one, but without the 'bulb'.

There were more differences between type 1 and 2. Tail lights were bigger, position of fuel filler was moved from the rear to the side etc ...
