    Thumbs up THE M3 of All M3s

    As good as the E46 & E9x M3s are, Stock or Modified, Naturally Aspirated, Supercharged or Turbo'd, neither of them will ever embody the driver connectivity ad true "M-new" that the E30 M3 delivers. And because the truth of the matter is that there are no substitutes for the original...

    For a 25 year old car, that's in phenomenal condition.... Only problem is if I bought it, I'd be very tempted to to an S54 stroker swap

    Save that for a regular E30 chassis. If you find a mint condition E30 M, just leave it the hell alone Click here to enlarge

    Awesome video... The M series (esp. e30 or e36) back then were so ahead of their time in terms of handling/looks/etc. - just a special car all around. They still are today, but not the same way - no doubt about it. I would love to carve some canyons in that car - the thing has no body roll; like it's on rails.

    Agreed...back in the day, the e36 m3 was unreal....such a great car, nothing you could really buy at the time to compete with it. All around, it was a dominate machine...

    He needs to understand that motor was made for a reason. They could have just tweaked the inline-6.

    Regardless, no M3 will ever supersede the E30 M3. Ever.

    I'm trying to make this place more ipad and cell phone friendly. Hoping to have that done by the end of the month.

    Not to go off topic, but when your posting on a thread from a iPad, you can't see the whole post, you can't scroll down to reply...it's very hard to quote someone and then reply under it. 99% of the time I'm on my iPad

    I agree the ipad is frustrating. The best solution is a dedicated app.

    Give me money and I'll make it for you.

    Since we have some E30 fans here, I have a friend who has a very well sorted out E30 M3 race car for sale, If anyone is interested. It looks like an original Warsteiner BMW race car. Also have another friend/customer with the cleanest E30/S54 swapped car I have ever seen. Ever. Ever! He would want to start around 50-60 though.....
