I've owned my car for a year now, and I haven't actually totalled up the reciepts yet, but I've probably spent in the neighborhood of six grand on repairs/upgrades, not counting my recent $2000 stereo. Next year should be about the same money-wise, considering I'll have to rebuild the engine at some point in the near future.
Here's the problem - If all you've got to spend is nine grand, the car you get for that will probably need close to nine grand in repairs/upgrades to make it streetable and reliable. It would be advisable to spend around $15K for one in really good shape.
If you're just looking for a track car, that's a different story.
i also am looking for an e30 M3 but i have found 2 for 10,900 and 10,000. u are saying that these will not be reliable?...when i read the description and called the owbers up thet both saud that they are in perfect runing order. 1 has 128,000 miles and the other has 67,000 miles.
