I'm planning on purchasing a new vehicle at summer's end. Was thinking of waiting for new Altima w/ the 260HP Maxima 6, but will be purchasing an e46 M3 in 2004, and would like to get a lil Bimmer in my blood, so to speak. What kind of price would I be looking at to purchase a used e30, and what mods could I do on the cheap and still have a reliable everyday car. I do not want to buy a used e30 M3 as I feel it would be molested at this point, and I don't want another money-pit of a car! I tend to ride 'em rough, but have heard BMW engines can handle daily aggressive use, no problem. Do you think this is true of the e30. What common repair costs should I keep in mind before purchasing this car? Thanks in advance for any wise advice you have to offer!
