I'd say that is good advice, especially when the car has been modified to fit a custom turbo. You will pay out the nose for repairs if you can't do them yourself. However, if you can, or are willing to learn, a m10 turbo in good repair will be an awesome little car.
Just thinking out loud, there used to be a guy on e30tech.com from I think Lewisporte Nfld. that had an 84 318i that was turbo'd. This wouldn't be the same car, would it? I think his user name was Mitch or Mitchy or something along those lines....If it is the same guy, there is tons of info about the work he has done to it on there.
