GTS all the way, as much as I love the E30.

His quote at the end was dumb - "You know what they say about age and experience." Well, the GTS is the one with years of experience, yet he chose the E30. Duhhh... okay.

The E30 M3 for me ... why you ask the steering wheel is in it's proper place.

I've been driven around Scotland with the steering wheel on the other side and let me tell you it's no fun at all

Hmm. I have both an E46 M3 and an E30 half M3, the 318is. Between the GTS and the E30 M3, I would pick the E30.

I guess I am one of the few odd ones out... I probably would prefer the e30 M3 because it is such a rare piece of artwork. the e92 M3 GTS will be amazing for now but will phase out after a few years but even then the e30 will still be a classic. There is one argument for the e92 M3 GTS and thats it is also rare with 4.4liter engine and a true last N/A M3 that is "track spec" Honestly I would like the GTS to be manual even though DCT is faster...

WAIT! You can't get it in manual? Screw that that's a decision maker for me...

Judging from his glasses, the transformers belt buckle and the retro converse all-stars this guy is 100% hipster.. hipsters always prefer retro even when it goes against all reason.. so i'm not surprised

This. An E30 M3 in decent condition is a lot easier to get than a GTS.

Heck, it's well nigh impossible if you're on the wrong side of the pond.

All it is..is a stripped down M3 with a bright orange paint Job and a Big ass ugly wing...IMO this should not be hard for any M3 owner with the coins to replicate this car..E30 all the way...Like i said IMO.

I personally dont care much about "legendary status". I will take a more technologically advanced car over an older model almost always ( well, i'll reserve my judgement for that future turbo m3 Owning the latest M3 is already enough of being part of a legendary car series for me. I really dont want to drive a 200 hp beater that back in 80s was winning races. C'mon!

But if I had the budget to buy one of these GTSs, Iwould not do that. I'd buy stock just like I did and build the ultimate car for myself with the parts that I want. For me, individual is more than being "one of 150". Or, for the money, I'd probably buy a 911, again, the latest and the greatest GT3

E30M3 for me. The cars ability and pureness was perfect then and it still is today.

The GTS was only sold in Europe at the tune of over €125.000 euros.

In my mind GTS is overpriced, same price I get three cars E30 M3, E46 M3 CSL and some daily driven 1er Bmw. It´s also "investment" to buy E30 M3 or CSL E46, at least price not drop significant.
