    Yeah, they changed it somewhere along the way. I'm actually not sure when that was.
    I'm going to eat breakfast. And then I'm going to change the world.

    The entry level models of E21 range had single headlights.

    320 and 323 models had dual headlights...IIRC

    I have a book buried in a box somewhere that would tell me, but I can't be bothered to retrieve it. Thanks if you're right!

    Revo's right.The base models have single headlights (316i and 318i), the 320i and 323i had twin headlights.

    Maybe something like this Alpina? Most likely not as wild though...

    True, but if you take a look at the original M3 (E30), there are major differences (remember the flared guards and the deep spoilers on the Evo models?)

    Facelift of E21 had nothing to do with headlight units.

    Here is a picture of 315 E21 from 1983 brochure.

    The junior team 320. Two cars, I am not sure/doubt wether it is actually the same, the stationary one is owned by BMW, the racing one is not.
