On your budget, you could not afford to operate/maintain this car if used as your primary means of transportation IMO. Although there are many places to find parts at reasonable prices, here are some common replacement parts

Fan clutch: $230
Thermostat: $75
Clutch kit: $350
4 brake rotors: >$200
Ignition wires: $130
Water pump: $150
Front Control arms: $180 each

ETC....

Good luck in your decision...

I am a 17-yr old high-school student with a part time job( $7.00/hr.). My 1st question: Will $11,000-$13,000 get me an 1988-1989 M3 in good condition, or will it have costly mechanical problems?
2nd: If its in good condition, will I be able to keep it in good condition without going backrupt? Around how much money a year do they cost to maintian? Is owning an E-30 M3 realistic for me?
