Hehe, if I could get myself into an E46 M3, I'm sure I'd love it. For my decision, cost was one of the factors that came into play. I get the impression that the E46 M3 is a worthy successor to the E36 M3, but I was comparing E36 M3s to Plain Jane E46ers.

Actually, I think the comments in that thread were too dependent on stuff the posters had read in certain press. The E36 M3 was the most mass-market M3 built and, as a result, is often disparaged.

But it is also impossible to get purely objective responses on any of these boards as people tend to like what they own (or they wouldn't own it).

I love my car and reading someone disparage it will not make me stop enjoying it.

That said, I still want an E30 M3.
