It wasn't Mr DSRLeasing by any chance was it?

Seriously though, the E36 I would say is on a par with a MK3 Golf, the Audis of the same years were miles ahead.

That said, they were supposed to be minimalist and I liked the driver oriented dashboard, the way everything is focused on the driver.

If this question is about E21 owner, then unlikely, as the person in question is a lone wolf in latvian countryside.

I've heard stories about BMW ergonomics, including a couple from current audi owners, which were like "BMW is more comfortable etc, but I want to be able to drive in winter as well..." That particular E36 was quite interesting, with 2.5 engine and loud exhaust, but not for everyday use - the owner of it, who has C4 A6 2.5 TDI as a daily driver, bought that BMW for it's strengths, to be used for drifting in track and occasionally as a daily car, when A6 would be not available.
