Spec E46 has a ton of support and momentum to go with it. Plenty of cheap donor cars to be found or partial builds (save $$) - you'll want to find a 330 coupe/sedan. The E36 is showing its age somewhat and I am not sure if parts, etc. are as easy to find and cheap as the E46.

Check out the rules of the series you intend to run with and do your homework on the 5 vs 6 speed (5 is lighter, 6 is more stout - maybe...). You'll want to address the cage, chassis and diff reinforcements first obviously.

I was moments away from buying a 330i coupe donor and ultimately shifted towards a Miata platform after tallying up the expected costs.
