I really enjoyed working on my friend's E36

My friend has an E36 M3 and we worked together to change his coolant system and update the intake. I had a blast, the vehicle seems pretty easy to work on and the parts are CHEAP (relatively speaking).

I now am all of a sudden considering an E30 Cabrio or Coupe to add to the stable for it's sheer fun-to-work-on and fun-to-drive value.

I was wondering how many folks out there have older BMWs for the same purpose?

Here's his E36

I bought an E30 a few years back because I loved the way they looked and I heard they were fun drivers cars (light + RWD = sounds nice). It has been incredible, reliable, and I have done most all the work on it myself in my own garage. I have now spent almost twice what I paid for the car in parts and it drives like a Porsche (er... suspension wise anyway). I say DO IT!

Yes, E30s are fun cars to drive and are extremely straightforward to work on. I say do it!
