thanks for the input so far....
I've still been Considering the Subaru Legacy only because of the fact that I can pic up a nice 90-94 AWD with 4 cyl(possibly turbo) for around 1G note. the only thing is my boss said they are a bitch to work on because flat 4cyl design
and from what you guys have said If I go the E30 route I might just get whatever comes up in decent shape and mechanically sound whether it be 318 or 325.
Mind you Im definately goin to be keeping my eyes open for a 325ix... that would be the ideal car....BMW and AWD...
