I found this rather absurd message on one of the import message boards claiming mid 1980's Honda Civic's beating M3's?? WTF? is this guy for real or is he just a ignoramus. I'll post the message below :

In SCCA, M3s run against the Integra Type-R in stock classes, and against Integras and CRXs and Civics in Street Prepared (for
autocross). If you'll recall, M3s ran against Honda Accords in Super Touring (and lost)
As a side note, they also get beat by the Integras in SCCA road racing, and by mid-'80s Civic hatchbacks in autocross.
