to the op, I went through a similar phase of buying cars during my student years. I ended up buying an Audi and spending a crap load of money modifying it.

I would stay away from porsche's, especially with 15k you're gonna find one which needs a fair bit of work. E46 330i is a sweet car and a good choice, if I could do over I would have kept the Audi stock and saved up either for future investment or to go traveling.

Yeah, I'm kinda wondering why you would sell an E46 330i......probably one of the best ever made, sweet car for a young man......some people just don't know when they have a good thing

Ahahahaha Porsche owners are funny people, despite knowing Porsches are the best cars you try your best to keep me out of that stuff, good effort) advice with property is reasonable but I won't be staying in Australia for too long as ambitious as it sounds I am studying mechanical engineering to go and work for one of German car brands in future so property investment in Australia doesn't interest me atm. BMW E30 is a great car, I had one of the rareest packages 323i manual, coup with sunroof, amazing car.
My period of license suspension of 14 months is coming to an end and I won't settle for anything like Clio (no  offense). I'm thinking either 330ci, 530i E60, or a 944 Porsche. I will spend all my money on my next car because I've done it before and didn't regret it one second. Looked at boxters, they seem like a great option but I think I should test drive one before making any conclusion. How hard are they to maintain?)

or a 944 Porsche.

One of the guys on ferrarichat has a pristine 944 turbo. Looks good and is plenty fast too. It's been quite reliable for him.

Ok let me answer your questions simply;


1. What sort of car will i be looking at for under $15000 - an old ugly slow one.
2. How expensive are Porsche parts? And can u get them cheaper on the web with decent quality? - Hmm, for a 20 year old student you may find them to be quite expensive, especially some of the electrics.
3. Can you maintain it yourself? (not familiar with rear engine set ups and their maintenance) - Yes/No.
4. Can I expect reliability for the price? Reliability/Cheap.. <--- pick one and one only.
