    New to Me E46 M3

    Hey guys,

    Had an e46 m3 many years ago.. Sold it since life came in the way (marriage kids etc)

    Fast forward to today, have been looking for a low mileage clean example for a while. After a long search finally found one, completely stock 2004 carbon black on Imola Red. Clean all around , a bit of surface rust underneath whcih i will take care of.

    Glad to be back in this community, currently daily driving an 09 e90 m3 dct as well.

    Cheers!

    Congrats and re-welcome.
    I have been eyeing e92s but it would require the departure of what I already have.

                  welcome, again. How's the comparison between the 2? Have always loved the e9X and still think about getting one.

                    Thanks everyone for the welcome! Yes Ontario Canada!

                    Honestly both cars are awesome in their own way. If i could give a comparison i would say. Better Daily Driver = E9x M3 hands down (more creature comforts, refined, smoother) Better for Weeekend or fun car = e46 m3 hands down

                    Simple fast breakdown between the 2

                    Sounds = E9x
                    Looks = E46 (very subjective)
                    Comfort/Daily = E9x
                    Fun Factor Smiles per gallon = e46

                    Overall = tied.. lol have to recommend both if you can afford to have them! The e46 is a special car though I musy say!

                            Don't think - get one if you can. They are terrific in their own ways, but both excellent.
