BMW E30 M3 vs Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16 [video]

Motor Trend’s latest Head 2 Head episode is a real step back in time with Automobile Magazine’s Jason Cammisa pitting the iconic BMW E30 M3 against it’s Cosworth-enginged rival, the Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16 in a battle of the homologation specials. Mercedes-Benz had originally enlisted the help of Cosworth to make the 190E a competitive machine in the world of rallying. However, at that time, manufacturers such as Audi were dominating the championship with turbocharged, all-wheel drive monsters, so the 190E headed to the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft (DTM), where it locked horns with the beautiful, box-arched M3. Both cars are still incredibly desirable, but everyone has their favourite. Which is yours?
