If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.

I have a 318ti with a 1.9 and a E36 M3 with a 3.2. Guess which one I enjoy more driving? The 3.2 engine already is too much motor for that E36 chassis, I can't imagine what it would do to the 318ti!

There is a question of balance and smoothness. The 2002 IS the ultimate driving machine IMO.

I have a Mazdaspeed 3 that I drive to work and take to the odd drivers school every now and then. I do have to admit that it's fun to be able to smoke @98% of the cars on the road with a car that most people think is a run-of-the-mill econobox. That said, I get more pleasure from driving my 2002 or my 318ti Club Sport.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
