I have a '91 325i as you could see from my sig pic. I bought it with a mint body and floor pan, but a blown clutch and some worn out bushings etc. I paid $1500 for the car, then put a $400 clutch and over time another $1000 in bushings, tie rods motor and tranny mounts and a few other bits. The car was bought with 232000 on the odo. 2 years ago in March, and now has 320000km on the odo. Yes I drive a lot. The car has attended approx 25ish track days and 16 autocrosses since I have it and it tows the Trillium event trailer as well to all of the mentioned events. The only reason why I'm saying this is that if you maintain the vehicle and make sure all is looked after accordingly it will serve you wonderfully! I DD mine, winter drive it and do all of these performance events. I put about 1200km/week on the car and love every minute of it. I hope you find the same success with your search!
That is the perfect example of what a bimmer could do.. I gotta say its a very addictive car.. For christmas I bought myself bmw M T shirt And my presents were all bmw related...
