The first-generation BMW M3 has been climbing in resale price faster than anyone could've imagined. They're now true collector cars, resigned mostly to showroom duty in climate-controlled garages. But as Matt Farah of finds out, there's a good reason behind all the price madness.
Farah was offered a drive in a mint, 82,000-mile E30 M3 for his latest One Take video series. The car was mostly stock, save for a few Evolution III trim pieces and a lovely carbon fiber BMW Motorsport intake.
Interestingly, Farah drove a first-gen M3 in the past at BMW's performance center in South Carolina, and found the gearing wasn't all too great for the tight, hairpin-filled track. This time around through the sweeping canyons, though, his opinion is nothing but positive. He especially fawns over the fantastic sound coming from the S14 four-cylinder engine. Did you expect anything else from a car now worth (and )?
Watch for yourself to hear what Farah thinks.
