I know this isn't a forum full of enthusiasts interested in European cars, but doesn't anyone else have an urge to own one or more of BMW's M cars? I love the idea of the E34 M's and the older styline. For some reason the prices don't seem to high, but I'm a little nervous about the maintenance requirements of the engine in the car. It's essentially a race engine, so the valve clearances and such have to be checked every so often. Yes, it's good to do this in other cars as well, but I think they spec something like 15,000kms the valve clearances should be checked. That could get annoying. E30 M3's...I'd absolutely love to have one, but they're too damn expensive. I'm definitely kicking myself for not buying a friend's car about 3 years ago. He wanted 10k for it and I'm sure you could sell it now for almost double (if you wanted to sell it). E36's...It's gotta be eurospec if you get one of these IMO. Otherwise you might as well just buy a 328i. It's basically the same hp as the North American M3 and about half the price. E39 M5....money car. I want one so bad, but they are getting close to 20k or a bit more for a good one. There are some issues with the car, but it doesn't seem like any of it is insurmountable. Like a lot of cars if you pick up a wrench yourself you can save yourself a lot of $$$. I'd guess I'll own one at one point but we'll see.
