E30 or E36 track day/DD


I have an issue I'm torn on. I like the looks of the e30's much more than the e36's, but I've been told that an e36 would perform better for track days and the like. Here is my issue, which would give me the best bang for the buck? I would also daily drive the car so take that into consideration.

1) Buy an e30 and do some basic mods, would this outperform the e36 and still cost less?

2) Buy an e30 and swap e36 suspension and engine/tranny from a wrecked/donor car? Would this be more costly than a stock e36? Noticably better performance?

3) just buy an e36? would that be the cheapest/best performing option?
