Meaning it is maintenance intensive? I was figuring that. I think the reason why the price has been tagged higher is because it is certified from a dealer, thus resulting in an extended warranty. I'd be ok with owning one, I'm still doing research on it though.

I was also looking for E36 M3's as well. The E46 is just beautiful, but I keep thinking in the back of my head about maintenance on it.

It would be my daily driver if I did pick one up. I'll have to talk to the local dealers about M3 service. I see many E36's with high miles, but I rarely see E46's with high miles. Tons of E36's are driven daily, while a lot of the 46's seem to be garage queens.

What kind of things should I expect if I go with an E46 M3, especially since it would be daily driven?
