I moved to France last year and took my modified (290bhp) Volvo T5 with me...
Next year I'm seriously considering a mid to late 90's E36 M3 evo. I've looked into some other makes TVR Chimaera, Porsche 944 turbo, Scooby etc. But Really want a car that has all the comforts the T5 has: TVRs rarely have aircon, needed big time in the summer here! Porsches and Scoobies are turbo'd like the T5 and although easy to get some serious hp with an MBC or remap, big exhaust etc, I have a hankering after getting a n/a car again and the M3's 6 cyls sound gorgeous.
I'll have a budget of around 5-6+K to spend, next July/August. I've seen quite a few cars advertised on Pistonheads for between 3K and 5K; some nice looking examples at around the 4K mark- I'd prefer to spend a bit less than my max budget and put some money into some mods, ie strut brace/ exhaust etc.
Any advice and help gratefully received as this will be the first Bimmer I'll have ever owned and I'd like it to be a good experience!
Cheers and thanks in advance
