No doubt they are both great cars... I just don't like the nose of the Mercedes. It's almost like the designers forgot they were designing a 4 light system so they squeezed some rectangular lights in there height-wise and called it a day. I do like some Mercedes front ends but this one isn't one of them.

this is the stupidest comparison ever, an m3 vs 190e? why not 190e evolution, the normal 190e is just a regular car like an e30 325 thats a more fair comparison but if you are comparing an m3 to a non sport model car its a fail. an equal comparison is taking the race car of both models which is the m3 and 190e evolution. this video is comparing an m3 to a regular 190e what kind of idiots produced this ahahaha

The EVO III M3 would be a fair comparison to the Later 190e 2.5 Evolution.

I didn't get that at all from the video, he even said it was an unfair comparision, and at the end of the video said the 190 was a better car.....

you do know that the 190E 2.3-16v is not just a normal 190E, the 2.3-16v runs a Cosworth motor, has a bodykit, different suspension, that's why he's comparing it to the M3, if you driven one you would know that's not a standard Benz, those cars were the AMG Benz of those days, so the comparison is pretty standard.

The only part of the comparo that isn't fair is that they're using a Evo III M 3 instead of the Evo I. Other than that as Quack said that is NOT your run of the mill Merc. I've had the fortunate experience of taking a 2.3 190e for a boot and what a hoot. Gearbox is awkward but you get used to it quickly. Great car.
