Performance of current BMW cars v older models

It seems like these cars get quicker as each new model is released.

Does anyone know where to get 0 - 60 figures for 3 & 5 series cars as they were sold in the 1980s?

Try to search for scanned or archived road & track or motortrend issues. if I remember, every month they were featured in the back of the mag.

At the time, I thought the 528i was an absolute flying machine (after my Volvo 440 lol).
