Not frowned upon, mostly just forgotten.
I say this only because I love E21's and have considered buying one in the past.
The reason I didn't is because I wasn't looking for a restoration project, and if I was I would rather buy a 2002. For a daily driver, it's hard enough keeping an E30 on the road let alone a car that is almost 10 years older.
It's hard to justify buying an E21 because it's not quite a classic and a bit too old to daily drive and I think that's why most people choose either a 2002 or an E30.
