    25 Years Later - Comparing the E30 BMW M3 vs. MB 190E 16-2.3

     

     


    Re: 25 Years Later - Comparing the E30 BMW M3 vs. MB 190E 16-2.3

    I loved this video because the Benz wins smiley The folks on BMW forms were not amused at all, the e30 M3 is their God


    Re: 25 Years Later - Comparing the E30 BMW M3 vs. MB 190E 16-2.3

    However, the M3 E30 was the 80s icon because of its immense Motorsport success. The Roberto Ravaglia car in white with the ///M colors and the Warsteiner livery is just mythical.

    Indeed, great memories. From 1987 to 1993 the e30 M3 won a staggering 1400 races, the most successful (so far) racing car.

    Don't agree with the outcome, but I love these comparisons kiss

    ^^^Jaw agape. I knew the E30 M3's racing heritage was strong lending to the affinity for the M3 by BMW fans - and even non-fans, but had no idea its success was this dominate.

    It makes me question what happened? The M3 is barely relevant in the various racing series it competes in. For a time here in the American ALMS the BMWs (E46s) were allowed to compete with V8 engines derived from the old M5 (Pre-V10) instead of their 6 cylinder engines and they were still weren't able to be as competitive as the other cars in their class.

    My understanding is that they also did not participate in DTM for years, basically making it a 3 marks series (Benz, Audi, Opel).

    The latest M3 has not been an overwhelming success at least here in the US.
