my comparison e30 vs e36..I own both

Last week I gat a 96 325is coupe. I love the car..it is completly different then driving my e30. Some good ....some not so good. It's much smoother..luxurous ride. It's definitly a more comfortable car. The power is smooth and it just feels faster. I broke 100 and it just felt like i wasn't moving.

But what I think is missing is my e30 feels more like a sports car. It's just raw..I can feel the bumps in the rode. I can feel that all wheel drive just bighting in when I hit the corners. I can feel the speed and that keeps me in check. In the corners the e36 feels kinda cumbersome I guess. Where my e30 feels nimble my e36 just feels heavy. I don't know maybe im not used to the awd compared to rwd.

I love both cars but the e30 will be my daily driver..the wife is getting the e36 for her daily travels.
anybody else out thier have both and can give me thier view..
here's some pics of my 2 girls

Exactly ...though boring might not be the right word. It's still fun to drive. Even my wife said yesterday that it just doesn't feel as quick in the corners as my ix.
