I think he's coming back after realizing RWD sucks in anything but dry pavement :P. (j/k)

That's a nice M3 you got there.

I'm sure you'll find a good beater subbie to powerslide in the snow with

I've been tempted to buy an e30 M3. I've searching for good e30 325is as a track car, but they are hard to find.

How is the e36 treating you as far as cost of ownership?

Thumbs up

Mmmm... Your '97 Leg looks identical to my old GT.

3 Series BMWs generally perform well in snow, as the F/R weight balance is damn near perfect, and the throttle is quite linear. Good snow tires are a must. My father runs Nokian Hakka 2's on his '95 M3 and is very happy with the setup.

Though your lowered suspension isn't going to help much.

Which ones, e36, or e30's?

An e30 325is in decent shape is a bit rare. Everyone wants to turn them into track cars.

I called one shop, it had one asking $4500. 250k on the odometer.

I thought man, they must be smoking crack.

By the time I got down there to look at it, it was sold.

The other ones I've looked at are beaters.

e36 is probably a better buy. By the time I rebuild an e30 it is going to be expensive I think.
