But between e30 and e36, e30 hands down cause I think the e36 is the ugliest m.
And I think that disgusting gold color on an e46 is a disgrace to all BMW's. Why threadcrap?

You guys have some awesome E30's

To whoever owns the red E30 M3 in freaking immaculate condition at NC State:

You rule.

I know you're on this forum, probably

I was on a Porsche forum the other day and one owner was particularly livid about M3s. He said the E30 was the only "real" one and the rest were garbage. Mind you, he is a track junkie with the 997 GT3 as his toy So even Porsche fans have to agree that the E30 was a special car. I guess back then they were much truer to the "Ultimate Driving Machine" than they are now.

I totally agree with him. The E30 doesn't have all the useless safety bullshit that newer cars have today.

It's all about driving and nothing else.

Agreed. I will go against the majority grain of this forum.


That it is about 20's vs 19's and this tune or that. Should I put on CF diffusers or paint them to match my whip? What sunglasses are you wearing in your slammed whip?

My car has .000825 more hp than yours. Just look at my 20th dyno sheet. Frig'n go drive the thing.

That's why once I pay off hte car (and assuming I have no other financial burden like a family). I am wondering whether to get a used 997.2 C2S or a brand new M3.

Also, don't forget about which replicas are better than whose. Or the replicas of replicas.

My whipage is JB with black leather. Should I get these or would white with black dots make for better contrast?

Or maybe go totally of the chain and get red? PM me. HahAhA loL. OmG.

e30 m3 = streetable track car

every other m3 = trackable street car

big difference between the two.
