If you can't have the M3, it's the 325i you need or at least the 320i. Everything else shouldn't be considered.

So, the straight six strikes again.

I thought it wasn't available in the E30.

Nevermind, let's include it as well.

The electric car will most likely have the future - for now, I'd say gasoline cars are still ruling the roost.

Not that I think your choice is stupid - I am just saying I understand why many chose the way they did.
Haha. Thank you, I'd not seen that one before.

Tesla does tend to get pretty touchy over their car, especially its range. I can't find the article but another magazine/blog made a trip to Laguna Seca for a track day and documented what it took, and how long they actually got to stay on the track after all that trouble. Tesla was not amused.
