Q: Opinion about the mid '80s BMW E30

asked by on

What do you think about the mid '80s BMW E30?

They were great cars at the time, but most of them are worn out by now. If you can find a good one, they are like collectors’ items now, and they are worth a serious amount of money. Just realize that this is car is not something that you are going to be driving every day. You most likely won’t find one that will be in good enough condition to drive every day unless there has been a serious amount of work done on the car.
