Your handy 1986-91 BMW M3 (E30) buyer's guide | Hagerty Media

It's the first of many famous entry-level BMW touring cars to wear the coveted "M" badge. It's the original 3 Series, crafted to meet the needs of the world of motorsport. For some, the first M3 is the best, and it's hard to find fault with the E30's lightweight, minimalist body paired to the engineering brilliance of the BMW M subsidiary.

I'm not sure what years they were made or how many were produced, but there was also a cabrio (convertible) version sold in Europe. I've only seen one - in Belgium - years ago.

And if an M3 isn't compatible with your checkbook, check out an E30 318is...Not the sheer straight-line performance of an M3, but with most of the same M3 suspension bits, and a 1.8 liter twin cam that just loooooves to rev. Just as much fun on a twisty road...
