I'm new to the forum and really the BMW world. I just decided that I wanted an M3, but i'm still a little torn. I autoX and would do it in my M. Which car is better as an autoX car, E30 or E36 and why? Any input would be appreciated.
Supposedly, the E30 M3 is the best M3 of its time, so a bunch of BMW purists love to use them for the auto-cross. But I'm under the impression that the newer M3's always perform better in all aspects. Pesronally, I would get an E36 M3, I like that 240hp I6 motor and the overall look of the car.
for autoX it'd be the e30, due to its light weight. also the e30 is generally thought of to be a bit more bullet proof than the e36, but that could just be speculation. but as an E36 owner myself, i must say i do love my car. just wish it had an LSD
