T​he 2002tii was the first BMW to use the 1.8 liter M10 4-cylinder engine. It proved to be very reliable and continued to be produced until the early 1990s. The M10 was used in the 2002, the E21 3 series, and later the E30 3 series. It had a lifespan of 14 years before before being discontinued, a very long time for a single variation of an engine.
