I've never owned an e36, but I have driven one, and in my opinion the fun factor is better in the e30...but if you are looking for luxury the e36 would probably be better. Also the m20 engines from the e30's are bullet proof...not sure about the m50 though.

I owned many BMW's. E30, E36, etc...

I'd take the E30. Most fun to drive and very unique.

I love my 1984 318i the thing creeks and rattles but when a curve comes up and I whip through at 80 with absolutely no tire sqeal my heart is content.
I would get an e36 m3 to drive on 3 days out of 7

I like the e30 but it might be because it is not as common as the e36
