I disagree. Have you heard of an E30?:dunno: With a rough interior and exterior it's definitely doable. All he asked for was mechanically sound. I bought my 1991 E30 325i with 88k in MINT condition, no accidents for $4,700. Finding deals on E30's is really tough but definitely doable.in that case, anyone who had a chevy or ford or chrysler --or oldsmobile, for that matter-- could easily afford a Bimmer. Unfortunately, if you are looking for what you listed, hope for 5-6K, MINIMUM. You m i g h t get one in not-so-good condition for 4K, but good luck with that, too! Forget the 2K, or look for another car. Or a better job.
