Built in the same era the Mercedes Benz 190E is equally special to MB enthusiasts and provided the motivation for BMW to build the original M3.

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Automobile Magazine's Jason Cammisa rekindles a classic European sports sedan battle, pitting the legendary BMW E30 M3 against it's Cosworth-powered rival, the Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16. Find out which homologation special is the most special of all!

Which would you take? The E30 M3 all the way or do you have a special spot for the 190E?
Great segment!

That is just one of many stories of how the E30 M3 came to be...
