The condition of some of those cars is crazy. Very difficult to find a good E30 in  Ireland that hasn't got the arches rotted out or is full of filler. There are a handful of 325i around but for the price of a good one, you could buy an E46 M3.

In Turkey also good e30 M3 expensive than e46 M3. I always wanted to have a e36 sedan.

The first proper fast car I owned was an E36 M3. It was scary fast to me at the time. Put your foot down and it snaked and you had to fight with the steering wheel. I had another E36 M3, then I got a M3 Evo then I picked up a M3 Evo Individual. The individual was basically the same car as the Evo but it had leather Vader seats that matched the color of the car.

E30 M3 has hit the point where retro tax applies so it's super expensive. The 2 big names in that day were the E30 M3 and Mercedes 190 Cosworth. I used to work for Mercedes so I got to drive a few 190 Cosworths. They were ok, not impressive but ok. Took a while to get used to the dogleg gearshift. Had my first experience in an E30 M3 Evo here in Dubai after doing some work on it. They're pretty rare and there's not much chance of driving one unless you own it. One of the plus points of being a mechanic is you get to drive everything. I was disappointed. You read all about these cars and then when you get to drive them the magic is gone. I drove another E30 the same day with an E36 M3 Evo engine and it slaughtered the original M3. I've been pretty spoiled here with driving everything from Ferraris to 700+ BHP porsches so it takes a lot to impress me. I would rather have some fun throwing a little 1 liter hatchback around.

That was when LHD cheap BMWs were being imported by the boat load from Japan. Before that there was a glut of CB6 American Edition Accord Coupes from Japan. Almost everybody you knew had one. When they first arrived they were being sold for 30k ish towards the end of the trend they were going for as low as 5-7k

The second hand car importers see what is popular and then over saturate the market.

You'll find more old bmws here at a Palestinian wedding

Finding old BMW not the issue. Finding super clean old BMW is the issue.
