Wheels (Australia) - - Inbox - Mike Riordan, Camp­sie, NSW

I en­joyed the nos­tal­gia piece com­par­ing the E34 and the F90 M5s (‘Dream chaser’, April) but maybe not as much as Ryan. Haven’t we all drifted back in time and done the same thing?

How­ever, the test missed the mark as apart from the Mazda MX-5, most ve­hi­cles usu­ally grow a lit­tle and put on some beef with each gen­er­a­tion.

So each year most ve­hi­cles grow un­til they are hun­dreds of ki­los heav­ier, nowhere near the same class as the orig­i­nal. Com­pare the orig­i­nal Toy­ota Corolla or Volk­swa­gen Golf with the cur­rent mod­els. So given Ryan’s his­tory with the E34, the com­paro should have been with the M3 or even the M2!
