: Hey, I've loved the M3 since I was about 12, I am now 16 and am looking for a car for myself and would love the fast, and usually affordable E30 M3...however, would you guys suggest buying this as a first car, or do you feel the maintenence and repair is far to expensive. I would love to hear of any problems or tips you guys may have...thanks
: And by the way...my price range is about 11000 max
Without getting into the whole teeneagers and (relatively high) HP cars, I would not recommend an E30 with the amount of money you say you have. To get an E30 at that price it will probably need some work and to pay for the work you will probably have to go cheaper (and sub 10K E30s that don;t have major problems are hard to find). A good condition E30 M3 is a very rare find.
