old beamer is kinda played out already. i would probably go with the s2k. as people said, its a lot fresher in the styling department. Plus the current m3 is gonna stop production because theyre commin out with a new body soon, so the e36 is gonna be a few bodies old. go with the s2k, ull have more fun with it
1. Bimmer, not beamer. Beamer is like a vespe. Common mistake.
2. Current M3 is E46, not E36. New body will NOT be the E56(as much as it makes sense) but the E90. Powered by essentially the M5 V10 minus two cylinders.
3. Owning a BMW will always be more expensive than owning a Honda.
Either way, you're guarenteed thrills.
