did you ever find your dream e21?
well, if you want one that needs almost no work, you're looking at one in the $3k - $4.5k range. and imo, that's the norm, but every now and then a rare one will pop up. I saw one on ebay out of the DC area about a week ago, with a $4k bid and it still didn't get past the seller's reserve. So this car may still be available on ebay again. It was really, really mint and low miles, 85k miles.
also, in the e21 there's the 323i...a rare gem on any day to find, but even more rare if it's in top condition. the 323i is a euro car that has the 6 cyl. engine in it, and it has disc brakes in the rear.
