A clean e30 with a m52 swap would be a great find too, but I would not be ready to spend more than 5000k for a clean one ...
$5000 bucks for a "clean" M52 E30? good luck man! Those things are NOT cheap to build, if done right. Clean, slightly modded M20 examples can fetch that type of coin. If you find an M52 E30 for that much I would probably stay away to be honest as its prob a hack job (or someone taking a BIG loss).. also, an M52 converted to OBD1 with few performance mods and a tune, will put down very close numbers to a stock S50.
