RWD is NO PROBLEMS if..........
A) You have GOOD snow tires
B) your not TOO stupid and can learn to control the car
C) your not a WOMEN driver!
Other than that a E36 is a GREAT car to get, and for 12g's you can get one in a GOOD condition (earlier E36, 92-95 ISH)
Go for the 325 M50 engine, one word: BULLETPROOF !!
