I’m looking to buy myself a car because currently I don’t have one and what I’m seriously considering is an E36, preferably a six-cylinder one but I am willing to drop down to a 318is if the deal is good enough. I’m considering these because they’re represent some of the best value for money on the market, especially when Corolla’s of the same vintage tend to go for similar prices. and suit my needs.

I have a budget of around AU$4000, so a MX-5/Miata is out of the question, besides it’s a bit too small for a daily. Another bonus is that all the dickheads around here drive E46’s or Chevy-badged Commodores so there isn’t really that much of a negative stigma attached to them.

So, Oppo, is there any reason why I shouldn’t?
