probably a leak in the master cylinder. should be around or under a couple hundred dollars to install a new one if you take it to a mechanic.

yeah i guess you could do that, but the e30 325's have been known to have weak seals on the mc's, so take one from a E30 M3 (bigger, firmer, less pedal travel) if you can

Check wheels for leaking fluid before buying a master cylinder.
