Correcto. Thats what I said

Decent looking, fair power, fun to drive etc. '91 318i/iS is much like a 'budget' e30 M3 in terms of characteristics and feel, but certainly won't match a 325i in terms of straightline performance.
Edit. But ya, I do agree with you. My car has over 350k, and I'd rather take that then any other e30 trying to be pawned off on those sketch used car dealers for less than 200k. Maintenance>some Number
