Mein Auto: 2007 BMW 335I
E46 or E92 M3?

So here I am again sitting here deployed in Afghanistan looking forward to coming home. I have had a few cars in my past including 3 previous BMW's, 2004 BMW 745I, 2007 BMW 330I, and my favorite of the 3 2007 BMW 335I Coupe. Sold it a few years ago to get a '06 Z06 and had a blast but I have always wanted an M3, the styling, handling, overall I think itís a great vehicle. My issue as it stand is do I spend the money to get a low mileage E92 M3 which in looking I'm going to have to spend 0ver $40k to get a quality E92 M3, or do I find a quality E46 M3 and use the difference to upgrade it as I want to. Lately, I have been leaning to the E46 as a I still find its styling to be appealing, and I think the platform lends to many options. I would appreciate any discussion on this subject. Thank you, looking forward to getting back behind the wheel.

E46 and a TC Kline suspension.

Works great, rides the same or better than stock and handles fabulously.

Stage 2.5 is a good deal. New motor built for the power and it's more than enough to murder anything else in the streets.
