: I was reading this article about the E30 M3 which said
: that the engine had to be revved high in order to get
: any power out of it. Also they said that the M3 didn't
: sell well because the 325i was just about as fast and
: less expensive than the M3. Any comments?
The 352i is an easier car to drive in everyday traffic. I drive both and the 325i has the torque where you need it. It doesn't compare to the M3 in handling or at speed but is probably a more sensible everyday ride.
