: Here's a question I have wanted an answer to for a while, and thought this would a good place to get some opinions:

: How does an E30 M3 compare to a Porsche 968? I have never driven either, but from what I understand, both are very good-handling and balanced cars, both have high output four cylinder engines (with some engine vibration in every day driving, right?), and both are well-built, both require careful caring, so on paper, they seem like similar cars. Has anyone driven both, or does anyone know of a place on the net where I can find a comparison test? The Porsche is probably fatser 0-60, and some people have told me it handles better, but the BMW DOES have in incredible racing heritage behind it...

: I have been tempted to buy both, although my love for BMW tells me to forget the Porsche.

: Any insight would be appreciated.

Go with your gut. Besides its racing heritage, the M3 is going to go up in value as they are starting to be a practical collectable. The 968 is the last version of a car that was never held dearly by the p-car faithful and is going to tumble in value as every other liquid cooled p-car.
