      Didn't think my comments re: interior quality would rustle so many jimmies. Not my intent, just trying to be straight-forward and factual.



      Glad you brought up the size issue. The most...

      Seriously, how much better would an E30 be with something like a K20 under the hood? I'd definitely prefer an S50B30US even. The S14 is an an ill-mannered, cobbled-together debt bomb.

      Yes, there is a significant difference. My '10 Golf felt like a much higher quality item overall, despite the lack of 2.0T. This will bother some people more than others, obviously.

      Actually, that's the correct knob that came on the '12 Autobahn GLI.

      OP, remember that a FWD hot hatch and RWD sports car with a bespoke chassis are two fundamentally different things.

      -If you're more of a chassis/handling guy, adjust your expectations or you'll...

      I don't love my GLI, but it's a perfectly decent little sports sedan. Michelin Pilot A/S3s were a huge improvement over the stock Continentals. I enjoy the budget-Audi looks and how nicely it cruises...

      Love how totally feminist this video is, whether most viewers realize it or not. In countries like Saudi Arabia, women are forbidden from driving. To do so in a music video, let alone drifting, is a...

      I'll admit that the video's //M punchline put a big, stupid grin on my face. :thumbup:

      I'm pleased to hear Chris say that the steering has improved over the E90 M3 (which I felt had awful steering for an M car).

      He might be referring to the fact that the Bilstein Sport shocks for the E36 M are junk. However, the Bilstein HD struts for the non-M E36 are probably fine.

      That is a damned classy-looking automobile. Seriously, nobody these days makes a sedan that looks like this.

      When clean, Cosmos Black looks just :eek:

      I'd like to hear hushypushy's take on the E30 compared his FR-S.

      I have the Z3 rack in my E36 and I looove it.

      So why not sell your E30 M3 for big $$$ and use the proceeds to find a clean non-M E30 and swap in an S50/2?

      Clearly, you have money to blow on making this car exactly what you want it to be. I say go for it, but I personally would be thrilled even with the M50 in there now. :thumbup:

      Great looking car. It fixes one of my only qualms with the E30 M3: the engine. Let's be honest: the S14 is too high-maintenance, too expensive, and makes too little torque. It was practically thrown...

      I think that, to some extent, the goal posts have been moved by the Focus ST and Fiesta ST. If those cars did not exist and VW followed up the Mk6 with the Mk7, our frame of reference would still be...
