Anyone doubting that...check out Dave McIntyre's s14 powered e21 race car, 1900lbs with over 200hp
more than a match for most e30 M3s.

Even stock the e21 is almost 500lbs lighter...(my 82 is about 2400lbs)to quote the founder of Callaway the only thing this car needs (e21) is 100 more HP.

No denying that the M3 is a superior car in most every way (wish I had one), but a s14 or m20 powered e21 is sweet too (wish I had that as well instead of the lowely yet tuned m10).
