Lightbulb A History and Look at Four Generations of BMW M3

A History and Look at Four Generations of BMW M3

COMMENTS

It's always interesting to hear the history of the BMW M3 rehashed, but even more fun when you get to see them all together. Even more than that, we get to hear and see them all being driven in this recap of the BMW M3's evolution, from E30 to E36 to E46 to the E90.

BWS Motorsports' Marc Norris takes us through the generations.

P.S., if you're interested, here's a chart comparing the technical specs of all M3 generations [tech specs chart].

It's funny how the e36 m3 was despised by so many journalists, it happens to be my favorite one. The engine was still powerful, had great torque, and with the way I had it modded was the best handling car I've ever driven.

I think he meant RS4 instead of RS6. Otherwise, video was very good!

they had soul patches since the '50s. what's so wrong with hanging on to some things from your youth?

would you give up the music you listen to? stop playing video games? dress in a bow tie and a sweater vest because you reached a certain milestone in ages and that's what you think people look like that are that old?

sure, some things don't work passed a certain age....miniskirts, ponytails on guys...i'm sure you can think of quite a few.

but a soul patch? c'mon, stop being so critical.

Sorry Hyperjack, soul patch = pony tail, plus soul patches were not from his or my youth, that is a 90s- thing, it just looked bad imho.

i hear ya...to me, the guy works on sports cars and probably lives in a garage. that gives him a pass.

wow...i just realized we've spent minutes talking about the fashion sense of a middle aged man.

i need to find something better to do
