As far as all those cars you've listed go.. I'm sure they are all pretty reliable, but they are getting up there in age. You should assume that to keep your new car well maintained you will probably want to keep a few thousand dollars handy.

I have owned an E34 M5 for around two and a half years now and averaged about $2,000 per year in reapairs.

Hey Guys,

I'm in the market for a new used car. I have between 10 and 15 grand and I want something relatively sporty. As of now, I'm considering the following cars: BMW e30 M3, Porsche 944 turbo, mid 90's Toyota Mr2 turbo or an e34 530. What car do you guys think is the best purchase? Now, there is one important thing to keep in mind, I don't have a lot of money so I can't afford an unreliable car that is exorbitantly expensive to maintain. Also, seeing that this is a bimmer message board, I asking that people espouse unbiased opinions and not opinions that favor the BMWs listed (however, if you truly believe that one the BMWs is the best choice feel free to say so.) Additionally, if you can think of any similar cars not listed, please tell me. Anyhow, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
