I currently own an '86 325es and now I want a M3 - who doesnt? Anyway, originally, I wanted an E36, but I dont think I can afford that and afford to actually live, so I am now considering an E30 M3. What are the major differences in the years from 1988 - 1991? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Is there the "best" year to buy, or does it not really matter. I want the car to feel 'solid' and look imaculate. If I get a E30, I want a low mile one with no mods, so I can be assured it probably wasnt beaten. Any how, thank you if anyone can be of help.<br>Joe

They have the full airbag system, different airbox, and are rated a couple of HP higher. There are other small differences that really don't affect the operation of the car. With any 88-91 M3, or any car for that matter, the lower the mileage and the better the condition the more you'll have to pay. Deals can be found but they're scarce. The cars were designed to run hard so it's quite common to find used ones that have had some sort of body repair or undercarriage damage. With so limited a number of these cars imported I'm sure their value will be going up instead of down. I've got an 88 I'm giving away when your ready.

This may be your lucky day. I have a 1989 M3 for sale. I am currently asking $8,000. It has 106,000 miles. It's thunder black with black leather interior. Let me know as soon as possible if you are interested. I have several parties who are interested in the car. I need to sell the car by next week, since I am moving to Colorado. Hope to hear from you soon. <p>Contact me at: 703 625 8312 and/or chandford@hotmail.com<p>Thanks,<p>Chris<p><i>: I currently own an '86 325es and now I want a M3 - who doesnt?
