: Scott, since you own both, which would you get if you could only get one car:

: an E30 with low mileage OR
: a 95/96 E36 with around 40k mileage

: It would be a second car, regardless. I know they are completely different cars, but what would you do and why?

I'll tell you one thing. It requires more skill to drive an E30 M3 at speed than it does an E36 M3. I put the "fun factor" on the E30 M3 since it is more of a momentum car. The E36 M3 can cover up a lot of bad habits or even make up for mistakes, some of that due to the amount of torque it has. The E30 M3 will bring out such bad habits and force you to learn correctly.

Another thing, I've had more fun on the track in my E30 than in my E36. My opinion is somewhat biased though since my 95 M3 was sold about a year ago. You can't go wrong with either car.
