I though Id start as nobody else has…
As the title says BMW M3 E46.
I’ve had it a few weeks but only done a few hundred miles in it, however here is what I’ve found..it’s fast..damn quick in fact. As some of you may remember from the old forum I used to own a Mazda 3 MPS and that is a pretty quick car but the M3 takes it to the next level.
I love it when i get in the car, and when i got in it yesterday after not being in it for a couple of weeks I smiled all the way to work. Even though it is 11 years old it feels tight and unbelievably well made, even compared to my 3 year old Mazda.
So to conclude, the good points – performance, surprising fuel economy (over 30 on a run)build quality, ergonomics of the dashboard, the engine sounds immense,don’t know if the exhaust is standard but my god…
Bad points – It’s a bit of an animal and always wants to play even if im just going to the shops. It’s not what I would call a relaxing drive, tram lines a bit on bumpy winding country roads, thats about it really.

Man im tempted, How much do you pay insurance if you don’t mind me asking?

Insurance is only about £30 per year more than the MPS. It cost £308 Fully comp.

How much time did you spend looking for your M3? There are always plenty round but most of them I wouldn’t want to touch with a 40 foot pole.

It will be ideal as a powerful, reliable and well equipped daily driver. It was a wonderful car.The M3 can sound a tad tinny when cold, until things warm up the baffles sound like they are about to depart the vehicle via the rear
