M3 vs. M Coupe
Have not driven a e30M3 but have been in a bunch of them on the track in capable hands, and have run my 02 M Coupe at speed on the street and on the track.
Have driven most of what is out there, and the 02 M Coupe is among the easiest most progressive cars to drive hard I have ever owned, and the includes the classic four wheel drifter, the original 2002. I can slide the hell out of the M Coupe, and the worst I get for it is very slight understeer. Have heard that the earlier ones were prone to sudden oversteer, but mine is simply not. If anything, I had to trail brake deeper than I do in my 3 series. Fastest way around a track is to not waste a lot of time sliding, but if you are a little to fast mid corner, it is no big deal (assuming you have the room at track out). New M Coupe is a ***** cat on the track.
