I've been doing some research and this cars pretty much worthless. Would the seller be offended if I offer $200 or $300? Crap I have to tow this thing too probably 30 miles.

I think I should pass.

Be honest gas mileage

I'm wondering how many miles e30s get. Post the car model, year, type of transmission, and MPG. I hear sellers saying they get 35 MPG on a e30 325i that's really hard to believe.

Nope that's not the same rear. I'm seriously thinking its an M3 rear completely flat not rounded like the 325i (exactly like the picture), but who would put a 325i badge on an M3?

325i with an M3 rear?

I just saw the cleanest white e30 ever, but there was something weird about it. I think it had an M3 rear (the square boxy rear), but it had an 325i tag. When I looked at the side of the car it had...

Body differences between the 325i and 325is.

I know these two cars are very similar, same engine etc. Sometimes when I look at the two I can't tell the difference, other times I feel the "is" looks better. I'm talking about the later models...

Thanks guys, I think I'm gonna stick it out. I guess you can call me a purist. Changing little things like the grill or the maintenance stuff is fine, but going body is too much for me.

Is an 325is worth the wait?

I've been searching for e30's for about a month or two now. I've decided I was going to go for the 325is, but now I'm thinking about just settling with the 325i. Is the "IS" model worth the wait?
