3-Series (E21, E30)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1975-1983 and 1984-1991 line. Specific models: BMW 315, BMW 316, BMW 318, BMW 318i, BMW 320/4, BMW 320i, BMW 320/6, BMW 323i, BMW 320i. E30 Family models include: BMW 325e, BMW 325i, BMW 325is, BMW 325ix.
I've got a chance to pick up an 198* e30 m3 convertible in the next few days. 160k on the odometer.
What should I look for? What are the warning signs to stay away? What price should I be looking to pay, (I'm getting this car from a dealer that took it in on a trade. My dad works for the dealership so i'm probably looking at $100-200 over what the trade in value for the car is.)
What breaks on these cars? What repairs will I run into from the start and what should I expect to spend to fix them?

I didn't even know the e30 m3 came in a convertible...
IIRC, there were less than 200 of them built. Who knows how small a fraction of that came to America. It's one of those ultimate BMW trophy pieces as far as I can see. I'd happily pick it up myself just for the investment potential!
buy it mother fawker. Who cares if it doesn't run..put it in your garage and just look at it!
ditto. OMG GET THE F---ER!
