the 328's (e36 body style) are made from 1996-1998. A 1998 328is stock runs 0-60 in 6.2, and quarter mile in 14.7. That is pretty decent, and as a driver I would agree with you that the extra pep is worth the lower mileage. By the way, what kind of gas mileage does your twin turboed all wheel drive road monster get. (I'd love to own an sti)

Find the cheapest, good lucking, reasonably in shape E36 318 you can find, then turbo or supercharge it. You will have a car with great driving performance, and a good responsive motor for the road. Gas mileage won't be that bad either. And latter you can sell it to a young man who is looking for a performance car.

I guess I will look for the 328 then. My wrx is out in pheonix arizona right now. I just got a new motor put into it. It is the motor out of the JDM STi RA Spec C wrx (I don't expect you to know what the hell that means .) It puts down around 300whp stock, so it does feel very peppy. That is the main reason why I do not want to drive it everyday to work. Gas mileage is pretty good until you get into boost. I get in the low twenties average without spirited driving.

Your original post indicated you were looking at a 325 for around 4 grand. If you go to the latter 328's, you'll be spending a heck of alot of money.
Keep in mind, bmw's are built to last - so you can go with an older one with higher mileage. I always figure that if I divide a bmw's mileage by 2, it gives me a good representation of how any other car would perform (that is, a bimmer with 150,000 miles on it performs like pedestrian cars with 75,000 miles on them).
btw, 4k for a 93 is a pretty good price. I paid 7500 for my 94 325 (but it only had 56,000 miles on it...unreal).
