Default hi guy,i have a question,please help me!

Hey here, I am pretty new to this, so bear with me. (I hope I'm putting this in the right place :P). I am looking at getting a salvage, to repair, after hearing that this is a good way to save money by some old friends that did this years ago. I know of the issues with high insurance costs etc. but considering the vehicles are so cheap, should still save money in the medium term. What do you think about taking on a project like this? Here is the one that's similar to those I've been looking at.

Any advice? Would you take a project like this?

No E46 M3 is going to save you money. Commonly held POV is that this car will cost you $25k minimum, but you can get there a few ways, e.i. buy a $25k car or buy a $10k car and fix it up. If you like to highly mod your car anyway, may as well start with a cheap one, but if you goal is true OEM+, I'd buy the most expensive, best condition, desirable car you can find and mod later.
