Upgrading from my e46 touring to an M3 coupe?

I'm in a pickle. I searched for more than 4 months to find my California e46 manual touring and thought that I was all set....that was until I took my z4 to my first day of driving school yesterday.

I want to start doing x-cross and track regularly...and I would have to upgrade so much to make the touring track/x-cross worthy (steering rack, short shift kit, etc) that now I am strongly considering selling the touring and upgrading to an M3 manual coupe. I bought the touring because I am a cyclist and like the idea of throwing my bike in the back of the car...but I took a close look at an e46 coupe yesterday and I think my bike will fit easily (for some reason I thought the e46 M3 didn't have fold down rear seats). And, the rear seat access isn't as bad as my old Integra (I am single, so I am mostly a solo or solo+passenger situation).

Has anyone done this (or similar) and regretted their choice?
