I've been looking for a good E30 for a while now. I test drove one a while back, the transmission was all screwed up(it was really tough to shift gears) but the car was fast even though completely stock. This car was a '88 and had 140k miles. Then last sunday i drove another E30 that was a '91 with 90k miles. Even though it had a custom exhaust system and less milage it was noticably slower than the '88 i mentioned above. Did BMW make the '91's slow or is this car's engine just screwed up? I didnt have the A/C on or nothing so it wasnt taking power away from the engine. If the '91's engine is screwed up, how expensive is it to rebuild the engine? Thanks for the help in advance!
