I know it'll be hard to believe, but I actually like the e36 M3 as a whole car Any other e36 is a waste of time IMO, but I've loved the 2 M3s I've gotten a chance to drive

The E30 is what all actual driving enthusiasts are after. It's an unpretentious machine, quietly capable of spectacular feats of handling. It's light, simple design is rugged enough to run against $400k rally cars, but on the street it' communicative chassis delights even the most disinterested driver. It really is one of the world's ultimate driving machines

WTF another Motogp fan??

I've been cheering on Spies and Hayden all year. Unfortunately Hayden just keeps sliding further and further back. Somethings gotta be going on in the Ducati garage, Stoner and Hayden can't seem to get anything together.. Hopefully that'll change next year, I cant wait to see #46 on the red machine
