If you haven't already, check out the sticky thread for "Buying an E30(Checklist)" near the top of the e30 threads. It's full of good information.
My own extra 2 cents-check the brake lines and fuel lines for rust-its about $300 per line if they go, and there's 3. Also, most people don't like to do them themselves as there are a lot of bends.
Good luck! They're great cars, but sometimes repair costs can creep up, so be careful at the beginning and stay clear if you see too many obvious problems.
