    Funny. Around tight twisty canyon roads, my stock e30 m3 is faster than most modern sports cars including gt3, 911 turbos and exotics. Don't brake too much, just enough to turn in and exit with some slip angles.

    I have seen what an Tuned E30 can do and it's also the only bmw that i would consider.Maybe the 330I as well.We have an E30 here running under 10sec quarter miles.Then there's also a roadworthy one that runs nitro's and goes like a jet on steroids 😁

    This is a car show and I know Alex knows how to drive fairly well. But why doesn't he know how to rev the E30 up to say 2000 rpm or even 1500 rpm before the start to get a much faster take off? As well even without launch control he could have tried to brake boost the car himself for a better launch. Sigh.....Oh well. Oooo...E46 M3 doughnuts for the WIN!! YEA!!

    It seems to me that the driver is too young to "get it"! The E30 isn't about overall speed as the G30 will murder it. The E30 is all about the delicate chassis balance that very few drivers of nowadays will understand..what with all the electronic driver aids. He himself made the faux pas of saying "no abs, no traction control". The E30 has ABS but certainly no traction even mention traction control in the same sentence with the E30 says it all ! All the same it's a decently shot video.

    People say,the closer to death you get,the more alive you feel and for that reason,the e30 would be more fun to thrash around a track,or back roads (when nobody else is on them of course 😉)

    Fairly, today’s M2 is the successor to the E46 and previous M3s. Today’s M3 is the successors to the E39 and older M5s.

    Driving fast in a modern sportscar seems so effortless - press a few buttons, step on the throttle and let the computer do the work for you. Sure it’s blistering fast, but where is the skill? Such a snore fest.

    Come on seriously. A lot of E30 m3 owners have the upgraded clubsport (purple e46) rack and a heap have had engine conversions to more modern Bmw M engines. Coilovers and brake upgrades are commonplace. Race one of them against the new m3 for a video all of wanna see.

    E30 M3 has a much better platform than the new M3. Once you get into a turbo platform to start, there is not as much gains as an N/A car. Buy the E30, chuck a turbo or two and be comparable to the new M3 for cheaper.
