Interesting article by Andrew Frankel in today's Sunday Times. Rates all the M cars. He rates the original M3 best with the late E34 M5 2nd and the E46 M3 3rd. He really slates the E36 3.0 M3 as the only one he would advise avoiding. And that is the Euro one he is talking about. I'd hate to see what he'd say about the USA version!
