BMW E30 325i: Sorry M3, It’s the 325i’s Time to Shine! - Ignition Ep. 144
Back in the day, the E30 M3 dominated race tracks and rally courses around the world, but these days, it’s the BMW 325i that’s getting all the action. The 325i is raced in the SpecE30 racing series and is a favorite in ChumpCar and the 24 Hours of LeMons, as well as the go-to rear-drive car for the Team O’Neil Rally School. It also makes the far better daily driver. Why? Well, the M20 engine combines incredible sound and smoothness with unfailing reliability. And with the E30’s tough-as-nails chassis wrapped around it, it’s seriously fun and shockingly fast around a track. Watch as Motor Trend Features Editor Jason Cammisa takes a rally-prepped 325i into the woods and then onto New Hampshire's Club Motorsports’s road course before it’s even been paved. And then, Jason asks Randy Pobst to race his 325i Touring station wagon against the brand new, 320-hp 2016 BMW 340i with M-Sport and Track & Handling Packages. It’s 25 year old and has only about half the horsepower, but can Jason’s 325iT keep up with today's fastest non-M3 3-series around the Streets of Willow?

AMG Hammer Sideways In The Rain !! (And a Factory Tour) - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Quick video this, but it's not every day you get a spin in a factory owned AMG Hammer. We also had a trip around the factory at Affalterbach and saw some other cool stuff.





This Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16 Has A Subtle Flair
“When I was a kid, I was so into cars, I had Road & Track, Car & Driver, I had Autoweek, I had all that stuff,” says Del Necessary. Inevitably, those publications ended up at his mom’s house; “…one day she was like, ‘I’m not holding onto this stuff, come get it,’ and I thought, ‘What am I going to do with all this?’ so I got rid of all those magazines… but I kept all the ones on the 16-valve.” A few years later, after a chance encounter with a classified ad, he was the proud owner of a 1983 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16. Its racing success and subtle engineering advancements are what appeal to Necessary and his wife. “I think it’s a beautiful car,” he says, “…my wife complains it’s a box.” A lifelong car enthusiast, Necessary has a small stable of classics from around the world, and while the others are all overtly sporty cars, the 4-door 190E is subtly menacing with a factory-fitted aerodynamic body kit. Menacing? Despite having less than 170 horsepower, its 2.3-litre engine was reworked by the British engineering specialists Cosworth, and the entire package was more than enough to challenge the E30 BMW M3 in period. “Sixteen valve [engines] were kind of peaky, you know, until it got up on the cam,” he says, “…but it definitely kicks in at about four grand, and comes alive.” He returned it to stock once getting the car, and apart from its European “Evo” wheels, remains as true to original as Necessary was able to get it. Once its daily driver, now, it get exercised regularly—early morning drives through the mountains are what Necessary loves most.
