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!
