Well then there is no way you are a TRUE enthusiast
Call it what you will, but I think the e30 has become overhyped.
I have to agree with you on that, E30 is becoming overhyped, however it's a car with a beautiful character.

you tell me another affordable sports car that appreciates in value
in the last year, the value of E30 M3s has gone up 27%
Does that mean I can get paid for leasing one?

No
First of all I don't think you can lease a 25 year old car
But if you buy it, you'll make money when you sell it
The last one I had, I paid $13,000 for it
Sold it 8 months later for 16,500
That's a 27% increase

To this day one of my main goals is to have my very own porsche in my garage. Just waiting for the right one to get traded in

I love to hear stories about people obtaining their dream car and also having the background history of the car. really cool video
stories like this (and the vid) always make me smile. always cool to say "this is how i fell in love with these cars" when we look back 10, 20, 30 years

I have owned my E30 M3 since new. I also have an E46 M3, E82 M1, E60 535 XDrive MSport dinan stage 2. The E30 M3 is the slowest of the bunch, however it is, hands down, the most fun to drive by a large margin. It is definitely the most neutral handling of the bunch, and it gives such nice feedback of the road. It also just looks so good. A real classic! I have also driven other exotics, including Ferraris and Porsches. In my opinion, the E30 M3 is on another, far superior, level then any other.

What kind of an enthusiast buys a car which supposedly that great and sells it a few months later?!
