I would go with an E30, go much older than that and you will most likely have to pay a high price for a good car or a low price for a car that needs a lot of work. Just shop around and get a good E30 not just the first one that you find that fits your price range.

E30 325is or E28 535is is what I would suggest. Since your family seems to be pretty well off, I don't think maintaining either one should be a big problem.

I dunno, first car shouldn't be something you would be TOO worried about if you sratched it, I dunno, humm, I'd suggest a 318

humm, try a 323 or a 325 then, but I dunno, first my first car, i would stay a bit away from a 328, I mean, unless you drive your sister's for a while, that way you can get a feel for actually driving, then in that case it would be fine...
