I would totally agree. The 240sx is a wonderful handling car, and there are a bevy of aftermarket parts for it. If this one's already had the sr20 swap, that price for it is quite reasonable, and you'd give a lot of other cars quite a run for the money.
Sport Compact Car has been doing a sr20 conversion to an s13, and has a very good set of technical articles on it, regarding what kind of brakes, LSD, suspension, etc. are available for it. I love my 240, so I guess I'm a little biased lol.
If the 240 weren't just a sports coupe I would have gotten it. 4 doors are my thing, some people like coupes, to me there's just something about high performance sedans. Plus people grossly underestimate them.
The driver of the wrx yesterday was talking to my brother (without knowing it) and said "that guy is pretty tough competition, he's putting down some good times I don't think I can keep up with that BMW. And it's a 4 door" which is kind of ironic because the WRX is a four door.

It really depends on your needs. The 240 as has been mentioned before has the most aftermarket support. There are great engines and suspension kits out there for it. The car is suited for almost any kind of driving with the right mods. The E30 M3 would be a great car, but may be a money pit unless you get a good condition car, which may run you more than you want. The E36 328 would be a good compromise between the other 2 if you need the space of a 4dr Or the E36 325is would also be good. Not that much difference between the 328 and the 325, you can take care of it with a mod. I would stay away from the RX-7, and personally audi's just aren't my thing, don't really like the styling of most of them, but respect their enginerring. All in all good cars to be thinking about. Now you just have to think about which is going to be worth the money, and most suitable for your driving habits and lifestyle.
between the 95 325is, and 96 328is there is a small maybe 1000-1500 $ difference, but with the 328 you get more torque, standard body colored skirts and bumpers, options for auto climate control, and other small updates
for value, any 92-95 325is is incredible, and for the amount of money you have, you are better off getting a 325. if you had maybe 10k, id switch to the 328.
theres not a huge difference, either way theyre sweet automobiles
