The BMW E30 M3 is a hero car. In its day, it was considered seriously quick. But has its performance stood the test of time or will it be humbled by today's far more mundane 320d?

This is the first in a series of Heroes Humbled? videos we'll be publishing over the coming days.

      You do realise torque at the flywheel is a meaningless figure? A gearbox is a torque multiplier. Which is faster, 400nm at 2k revs or 250nm at 4K revs? Exactly.

      Its supposed to be an m3 and it barely won against a 320d. Sorry but im in favor of the newer diesel, does almost twice the mpg in a heavier but more comfortable shell. The point is the diesel is almost as quick as an old, top of the line sports car.

      You can't compare a petrol engine and a diesel engine. petrol engine is faster

      I'm sorry, but what drag race were you describing at the end of the video. It was pretty much the reversal of what you showed! wft?!! haha. Fun to see the proof that we are indeed living in the absolute golden age of horsepower.

      Whats the point of this?
      Like everyone interested in these cars will go for that one he wants no matter if the newer more fuel efficient one is faster

      An M3 is still an an M3. But if you were to tune the F30 Diesel. It would easily spank the e30 M3.
