He does not link to third party galleries, and the images are not wider than 800 pixels, so this remark is completely uncalled for.

The first BMW is not an EVOIII and the first 190 is not an EVO II but a 2.3-16v.

Thanks Mr. Melissen for clearing it up.

And yes, the first E30 M3 wasn't an Evo III, nor was the first 190E an Evo II, but this comparison is between the EvoIII and EvoII Beemer and Merc respectively. Thanks for the trivia though.

I love the Benz, so I will take it. Not to say the M3 isn't amazing or anything, I just like this Benz more.

Mercedes here.
With only 500 built, this are sure to become collector cars, and are nice investment for the future.

I chose Mercedes I've seen them on eBay for really cheap, and it's tempting. Looks fabulous in the last picture.

I say benz. ever since the licence test in GT4 I fell in love with it. The M3 is really nothing special... compared to the benz. This coming from a self professed BMW lover.
