Great review! I'd love to be able to finally drive an E30, not to mention an M3 E30. Some of your observations are similar to the ones in this old comparison article of E30 325is and E30 M3. The author also seemed to have found M3 a little soft off the line. Actually he points out that 325is develops more torque at a lower rpm. Maybe you should consider getting a "regular" E30 as a track only vehicle and make some race modifications to it and keep the E36. This would definitely be cheaper and E36 is a much more practical everyday car. I also hear that inline 4 in M3s were not as realiable as inline 6 found in 325is. Anyway, just my 2 cents.
