Very unlikely in fully functioning condition. You could find a rebuilt or salvage title for that price probably but not a clean one.

So big question here:


Why would you want one at 10k or less... a 50k+ car for 1/5th of its value probably isn't in any shape to own...

If you did find one under 10K I would be extremely worried about maintenance and repair costs in the future unless you have allot of extra cash. Then again if you had allot of extra cash you would spend 15-20K and get a relatively clean ond you wouldn't be looking for an E90 for under 10K.

I remember being 20yrs old and I drove a reliable nissan pulsar and I found a Eagle Talon Turbo with AWD and a stick with 80,000 miles for 3 thousand. Against family recommendations I self willed the purchase and within 3 months I was walking due to reliability and maintenance costs. Lesson somewhat learned. I say somewhat because allot of us want the next level of performance and quality on a limited budget. I am looking at a CPO M6 with 37,000 miles for $40k Smart? Nope. But damn if the obsession isn't driving me mad.

Good luck buddy. But I wouldnt track a salvaged car. Frame damage is a big fear factor for me.

Why not buy an e46 M3 with high mileage? mod the engine up and your good to go

335i isn't what I would put as a good track car. Lots of other cars would do much better imo.

Replied, you may want to make a thread about a good 10k and under car for track.

I personally would recommend spending a little more and grabbing a:

S2000
STI
WRX


either of those would be cheap to mod, maintain, etc and give you good track times.

10k is a lot for a car that you will only be able to track one time

I snagged mine just under 15, but that was a steal. Everything cheaper was a can of worms.

Not worth it even if you can get a steal. Car is likely to have alot of problems considering its ganna have a lot of mileage.

for 10k you would probably end up with a 335i needing new turbos, and water at least not to include the mileage

For 10k the car would have well over 100k miles and would probably need a whole bunch of work.

I've seen a few around the $10k price range. Most are salvage but seem decently clean, not very well equipped but hey, its still a $55k car right? lol

You can get a clean ZHP with high miles for around there.

Or for track work a clean E36 M3 would fit the bill as well.
