it pains me to say it. i think the e36 would win in a race.
the e34 would be a close one. cause although 5'ers have gotten more powerfull over the generations theve gotten fatter.
some power to wieght ratios. ( lbs/HP)
e28 535i - 17.97
e34 535i - 17.16
e36 325i - 16.33
but the e28 is a great cruiser. you can feel the road in the same way as an e30. rip up the back roads all day and then at the end of the day, you can pick up yourfriends and go out some where with out cramming people in an undersized back seat. not to mention it will cruise on the highway with no effort.
i was driving back from going out to eat with 3 other people in the car, and doing 115 down the highway no one even noticed we were going that fast till another kid who was with us at dinner called. one of the best convos ever
him " were are you guys?"
me "91 north"
him "oh, us too. we should be catching up, were doing 100"
me "were doing 115"
him. "ok then, see you at your place"
