sure it does. we are talking E30s here not M E30's. You can find a real nice condition E30 for under $2000 no problem.. it will just be a matter of being patient.

I found one and bought it for $1500!!! BUT and I stress BUT it was not mint, I bought it as is from a retired police officer. The clutch finally went and he decided he didn't want to bother fixing it. So I couldn't drive it. What did strike me was the condition the car was in. So I chanced it. Best $1500 I've ever spent. Clutch set me back $400 right from the stealership and then I finally got to drive it, to see if anything else was up. Nope. Passed safety and emissions test with flying colours. So, I got really lucky, and now own a super clean, rust free 325i. I couldn't be happier. The point to the story is you CANNOT find a rust free, certifiable, emissions tested, nothing to fixe e30 for less than 2G's. Not gonna happen. I've looked and been patient for over 1 year and then stumbled accross this. I'm now into it for about $2500.00 + a lot of blood sweat and tears and that's just the beginning. I added an IS front lip, and a cloth sport interior. Next, wheels, tires, suspension, engine or mods?? not sure yet. etc etc etc.................

Good Luck.............
