e30's are climbing in value and at a pretty quick pace recently if you want a decent car you're probably looking above 4k plastic bumper cars are going for more, is's will cost you closer to 6-7k and m3's are anywhere from 30-50k but if you're asking you probably aren't looking for a m3

well the cars for sale on this forum or any e30 forum for that matter are going to be on the higher side, BUT most of them are enthusiast owned so they are usually in better mechanical condition. be aware not all the people who sell on this forum are real enthusiast or have any idea what they're doing. like this guy for example http://www.r3vlimited.com/board/showthread.php?t=335106

And the fender arches...

Not a problem if you want to slam the car on coils or bags but you will be disappointed with any springs you buy
