I spent some time on Craigslist today and bookmarked a few interesting (read: suspiciously cheap) FS ads. I then noticed I had bookmarked 4 M3s - one of each generation. Just for fun, I totalled them all up and what do you know? 75k.

That's a lot of enthusiast auto for 75k. Imagine having spent that entire sum on a base trim SLK55AMG?

Sure the E92 doesn't have a title, the E46 has high mileage, the E36 is probably wasted, and the E30 is in need of a massive overhaul... but hey, 75k.

From youngest to oldest:

I'd be interested to get OPPO's opinion on which would be the most rewarding buy. I'm talking financially and over a 2-3 year timeframe. As best as one could from a CL post, try and take in to account the basic work that needs/may need to be done on each car listed above.

And if anyone was about to ask, YES I have already contacted the E30 owner and sent him a long list of questions.
