Considering replacing my cage pretty soon...
Looking into used cars, and the 'requirements' are simple:
- under $25k
- 'reasonable' maintenance costs
The car will be my daily driver & weekend cruiser, and may see an occasional track day (I'm talking 1 track day / year or so... nothing serious).
I'm not interested in doing any performance mods unless they're cheap (under a grand) and will have significant results, while not sacrificing reliability.
So far I've narrowed it down to two options:
1. DISQUALIFIED: BMW E46 M3 SMG (prefer a coupe and not a convertible)
2. DISQUALIFIED: BMW E92 335i / xi
3. BMW E46 330 (ZHP Package?)
There are plenty of M3's for sale in the states - tons of options under $20k. The 335's are harder to come by and are more expensive, but may be a better daily driver option...
Am I missing any obvious alternatives? Pros/cons/experience with either of these?
