Since beamers are getting cheaper in the early 90's range, are RWD and available with a 6 cyl, i'm starting to lurk for one for auto-x and solo once in a while.
I've seen quite a few perform well, i'm not worried about the cars potential. I also did quite some reading in the faqs on different BMW forums.
3 things i'm still wondering about.
How much lower does someone sit with an aftermarket seat? Last time I took a E36 for a ride, it had a sunroof and it was quite cramped. No sunroof would surely help but I'll have to fit a helmet in there too
I'm 6'4" 240lbs so I need some room.
Since motors are getting cheaper also, I really like the way the 318IT looks, are motor swaps easily done for a 328 motor in there? Or i'm better off shopping for a 325-328 off the bat? Some people told me to stay away from a 318IT but could not give me a "real" reason why other then they dont like it.
Lastly, what should I look for when shopping for one? I'm pretty good mechanicly, did a few swaps in some hondas and nissans but german engeering is new to me... This wont be a daily driver but will be a week-end warrior driven with the intention of having FUN.
Thanks for answering my Q's.
