e36's are fail.

you want an 89-91 325is. it has the astest e30 engine available besides the m3. it has sport interior, the updated plastic bumpersand basket weave rims.

What are you looking to do to it? Looks? Auto X? DD?

If your looking for something that is good on gas then check out the 318is

get the reciepts with the car re the timing belt/waterpump etc. thats vital. if you havent got them, then change them yourself. other than that most of the problems with the E30 are cosmetic ie the dashboard cracks, bumper rippling etc
