You could also look at the 2002 cars. Non-computer vehicles have less to deal with. In 87 I think the 325is was a dohc cam motor and the 325i was a sohc. Whatever you buy invest in a shop manual for it. With that most repairs are nothing more than replacing parts. Off with the old and on with the new. Most of what you learn on an older vehicle will apply to new ones as well. Strut/spring replacement, brakes, etc. Learn the basics and the rest is pretty easy.
