if you really want a nice car, try like a 320 323 or 325 e36, e30s are great fun but a rare find for one that is in immaculate condition, inside and out. but dont buy a tuned up car because you know that whoever modifyd(talking about bodykits and exausts so big its storage for a bowling ball) the car is most likely younger and didnt know how to drive it, example wearing out the clutch, or doing handbrake turns everyday messing up the brakes, wheels alignment or who knows what else.
what im trying to say is buy something that is completly stock and build it yourself, youll fall in love with the car and get to know it better than if you buy it modifyd. plus when you really get to feel a car, knowing how it will react if you throw it into a tight bend, and knowing how to take the corner with your car, knowing the cars and your limit,is the best feeling ever, and that makes you a good driver.
hope i cleared some clouded skys.
