The BMW E30 3-Series is indubitably an icon, most particularly for being the starting point of BMW’s most famous car to date, the M3, and for retaining cult status amongst enthusiasts because of that reason.
It doesn’t matter what your biases are, as the fact remains that the original BMW M3 set a precedent that nearly every auto enthusiast loves and appreciates, which still carries down through tradition via BMW’s current M3, three generations later.
But if you’ve never really quite understood why the original BMW M3 is a car to love, Petrolicious featured a very dearly owned E30 M3, titled to Gabor Mester, who bought the car from the parents of his high-school friend, which later turned into a relationship between man and machine that only us car enthusiasts can fathom.
Check out the feature after the jump, which will surely keep you entertained and daydreaming during your afternoon lunch break.
