Josh, the E30 M3 parts are more expensive, engine has less torque and its buzzy (4cyl). The clutch is grabbier. It's just a shame to drive a E30 M3 in stop 'n go traffic (in L.A.). The M3 is just a more visceral to drive and the engine comes alive at over 100mph. The powerband is 4,500 rpms - 6,500 rpms.

The standard E30 325is is a great car too but is more suited to the stop 'n go because of the torque in the 6cyl. I think most cars loose their power on the top end. Parts are cheaper too.

But many people drive their M3's as daily drivers, I just can't bring myself to do it.

'89 M3 40k mi. weekend and trackday car.
