Anyone have an E30 blower motor they'd be willing to sell? Couple of years fins broke and it's vibrating around. EBay prices are pretty high and I don't have bmw junkyards around here.

Trying to get more power out of an M50 based engine isn't worth it at all. You get all the bolt on, cams, maf, tune, intake, etc it costs thousands. And you get like 250whp max.

Thoughts on E90 M3 sedans? Their prices aren't bad. I've seen a few with 60k to 80k miles for under 25k.

How's maintenence on them? Are they more reliable than 335s?
