Just wondering if anyone here has used an e30 in autocross before and what their opinion of it was?

I like them a lot, but I still think the E36 platform is a little better suited for autoX. IMO the best E30s for any type of driving events are the 87-91 325i/is or the 1991 318i/is.
They're great for relatively cheap, but they're not new cars and parts aren't as cheap as Hondas. They still have 14-15" wheels/tires which keeps costs down. Check rear trailing arm bushings and shock mounts before autoXing even if the car is stock. Non-sport seats are terrible. Those are all the main things I can think of now.
Here are some sites to check out:
