I disagree, for the type of autocross that goes on in Little Rock and the small parking lots, the e30 will be better. I drove both before making this decision.

You can buy a very rough car for $1k and put another $2-3k into it. The prices range from $1k for a beater all the way up to $7-10k for a motor swap or turbo e30 in perfect shape. Honestly, you should be able to find something at any budget in the e30. I've always loved them and I'm the type that likes very light and nimble over fast so I went with the 318is with the m42 DOHC 4 cyl.

I paid $3300 like Tigermack stated, but the car is already set up with springs, struts, swaybars, a chip, and medium case LSD.

The car has 200k+ miles, but the motor, transmission, suspension and diff do not. Well worth the price in my opinion.
