I'm getting rid of my e46 because all the fucking problems (now it won't stop over heating after replacing water pump and thermo) but luckily my dad wants it and is willing to fix it up. He's home like once a month anyways. So that puts me into a 'what-car-to-buy' situation. Searched around the market, WRX's, V6 6MT accords, other e46's, etc but since I am in college and don't want to put up with high payments, I started to look below 8k in spendings. I really enjoy the e30 and from I've searched it seems to be one of the more reliable BMW's produced. I'm looking into the late 80's, early 90's 325i (maybe IS if I can find one) I'll probably end up picking one up off a forum where they have done preventive maintnece and maybe some mods/upgrades. Who knows, but the question is, can I go wrong with buying a BMW e30?
