I'm surprised the E30 has gotten so few votes given its eminent Buddha-like status. It got my vote.

2 votes for the E36 automaticThat's 2 votes more than I expected to see! Best M3 ever, really?

Same here.

If a poll's results are clearly going to be swayed and bogus due to the sample, you might as well screw with it, right?

E30 is always one of my favorite cars. However, with its value continue to rise, I am not sure if I can justify spending $30k+ . Should had bought one 15 years ago for $15k...

What, no E86 M Coupe? I would go with the Z4MC 6 speed over any of these choices with the E46 M3 6 speed in second and E9X M3 6 speed in 3rd.

Done.

Where is the new M3/4 option?

I would say on looks alone it would easily win this poll.

Absolutely the E46 6 speed followed by the DCT E92 M3.

How much was $15k 15 years ago adjusted for inflation? Curious, might not be 30k today but much more than 15k

Well I'm fortunate enough to own both e30 M and an e92m and I love both cars but I get way more attention and enjoy driving the E30 more. So would have to say E30 for me. Oh by the way they are both mt and grey for that matter.

You have the ideal M3 garage. Love to get an E30 M3 myself.

My favorite M3 is the E92 CSL that BMW never built...and certainly wouldn't have brought Stateside if they did.

I'd have to agree with this one.

The GTS was close. If only it wasn't absurdly priced, offered in a single loud color while also being a pig compared to the superlight CSL, it could have been something else.
