What's up guys, I'm a newb here and I'm getting into the whole BMW scene. I'm here just checkin' out the different forums and trying to pick up information on bimmers. I'm on a fairly low budget and looking for a 2-dr BMW for under 10k. I was lookin at the E36 3-series and haven't been able to find anything for sale.
Are there any certain things I should watch out for as I begin to get into bimmers and buying one etc etc etc? Any certain engines that you guys recommend? Should I go with manual first and foremost or does it really matter? I'm not lookin to do anything ricey to it, just make it clean...rims/nice exhaust/engine chip/short shifter/angel eye headlights/a little window tint/intake etc etc...
Any suggestions and advice would be helpful, thanks in advance.
