Yup, I hear you about the price. When I was looking I really lucked out at getting it rust free for much less, but there was a lot of work to do to bring it to where it is today.
Consider the other vehicles you will find and if they have no rust for 4K you'll be happy, but WILL end up spending 1-2k on springs/shocks/bushings etc...
At the end of the day you will compromise on how well the car drives, until you spend the money to mechanically restore the entire car.
If you want to find out what a lowered E30 felt like when it came out of the factoy come drive mine and you'll think twice and find the money.
