Two touring cars, one track and 17 years between them - but just how different are they? PH finds out...

Cliff notes:

E30: ‘It wouldn’t be quick enough to get anywhere near the back of the WTCC grid today.’

I wanna see the last Evolution of the E30 M3 racer with up-to-date tires going up against that E90. I didn't think that was entirely fair.

^agreed.

That E30 M3 is a flying brick. It's got so much against it as well versus that E90.......... it ain't funny. Would also be interesting to better understand the current condition of the mechanicals etc on that E30 M3. If she's tired, she ain't going do her kin any justice.

Regardless, awesome idea for an article. I was hoping there was video too........... would be awesome to have had the E36 touring out too with the S14 motor.
