: 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?
You better believe it! It trully is the closest thing to a race car on the street. It's not Ferrari high strung and that is the true beauty of it. I have had both the 325 and the M3...both awesome cars...the M3 cost me 7,000 more. I never got the 325 to handle quite as good as the M3. The M3 has a close ratio steering box and better brakes. These make it a more sporting car for me.
