Except for the rather unfortunate color, that's a lovely car.

E30 M3 is such a cool little beast! Love the guards that stick out

It's special, but this was a very common color of this model. I've seen almost only black ones an in this bordeaux color.

I really enjoy these kinds of reviews. I even like the varied opinions. Remember, he already has an E30 M3 at home. Having the Benz next to it is a really cool idea.

Man... I need a bigger garage.

Damn there are some whiners and apologists on this thread!

Thanks for an awesome video, I watched it on the TV last night. Before I was into german cars at all, (although I was a BMW fan from the outside), I loooooved the look of the 190.

To this day, I still think it'd be a killer car to own, I'd positively love to pick one up. It goes without saying that I'd love to have an E30 M3 as well, but I've driven a bunch, and they're all over the BMW community, so it's less rare and desirable in that way. It's not to say I wouldn't prefer the E30 M3 longer term, but I'd be more interested in initially picking up a 190.

And seeing the success,
BMW followed Merc with the e30 M3, which also needed to comply to the rally rule of having a production car
Thanks for the clarification!
