if you were to buy a BMW ( e30, or e36) both 325's.

would u rather the awd or rwd?
now that i think about it, is there even an AWD in the e36's?

good question??
i think it might be the (e46) 330xi that is all wheel drive...
not a supporter of the wrx, but if it's all wheel drive... that's probably the route u should go.... and... all wheel drive, in a sense makes u kinda lazy,, less road feel...

I like RWD very much! It's a lot of fun.

NO!!! LOL. I have driven the wrx and although its fast, it doesn't give me the satisfaction that my 02 does. Not to mention, I can still own my friend who owns the wrx cause im such a better driver.

It kinda is preference though, both AWD and FR take much different driving styles to be fast. But if driven correctly, they can both be for the most part equal. Personally, I find AWD kinda boring becuase driver skill makes less difference than when driving an FR car.
