I've been tossing around the idea picking up another E30 as a second car. I just want to pick one up that is as powerful as possible stock. which one is it?

Ya, should be the late 325s.

There was an article in Roundel this month about modifying E30s. Looks like Dinan makes some good E30 stuff :p

the intake manifold is the only part that looks interesting.

IIRC, the B-pillar provides support on the E30 COUPES as well as sedans. See the pic.
The B pillar is functional in all BMW hard tops. E30 coupes had framed windows and didn't have folding rear seats (I think). I don't think that the coupes are weaker :dunno:
