Everyone, I am sure that this topic is completely played out, but I have made car purchase mistakes in the past.
I am looking to get rid of my '97 Civic which I got from my wife (who is driving a nice Volvo V70). I am tired of not having a fun ride, so I am strongly considering a 325is as my daily driver (and potential weekend track car). While HP and options are nice, I am really looking for your collective thoughts on which year would be the best for me to approach.
I am NOT at all adverse to working on cars myself (in fact I am in the process of restoring a W111 Mercedes ('67 230S)) so little problems aren't going to be a large concern for me.
Any isight will be GREATLY appreciated.
