Heck, I might even sell the M5 next summer if I get a good enough beater that won't break down on me.

The seller of the E46 has stopped replying to me. No matter, I'll email him once I return to NJ and ask to set up an appointment to see the car. Finals has me so stressed out so taking a break and looking at cars is a nice way to relax.

I'm still on the hunt for some E36's that fit my budget. I also found an E39 that seems nice but it is nearly $5k. I'll deal with all of it when I go back to NJ though!
You could do a lot worse than an E36. Had one for a decade. Excellent car. Never let me down. If I could find a good one now I would buy it. Trouble is they are getting on a bit now and the bodywork tends to be shot. That's why I got rid of mine with 250K on the clock. But mechanically? Ace.
