Well I never stop looking out for that rare M3, I am a fan of the E46 and when this came up for sale, well I had to get it for its bigger brother.

I will post up a picture with the 997 a bit later so I hope this does not get moved.







Hope you like them !

Boba, as much as I am not a big fan of Beemers having only owned 3 over the years Question I have to admit those two together do look the mutts. I think its the colour that does it for me. Thumb Thumb but good to see they live outside leaving the garage clear for the best car in the fleet mate Grin Grin

Nice pair there.

I wouldn't mind betting you get rid of the E93 long before the E46 though,

E46 for me every time. E36 even better....

I stopped buying M3's after I had the E90 when it was first released. Far too little driver involvement for me so I sold it after a few weeks and started my love affair with Porsche, beginning with the lowly 986 boxster which at the time was 1/4 the price but twice the drivers car...

E46 is the best looking of all the M3's in my opinion too. This one looks like a good find Bobba, anything special about it other than the colour?

Dakar is so much nicer than the Phoenix yellow that replaced it. I'm a little rusty on my BMW's but I thought Dakar was phased out in around 2001 ? So are the special order colors ?

Yes Dakar was a special order that resulted in a 9 month wait, as a result my E93 is 1 of 3 and the E46 M3 is one of 15.

But what makes the E46 M3 so special to me is the spec, it has every single option extra (and I mean every) except rear blind which is being fitted.

My E46 M3 followed my 964 so it never really stood a chance. I could not have bought a finer example but it was very quickly replaced by my 997 as an occasional car has to be special and, for me, BMWs do not achieve that status.

I'd be interested in how you define 'better'?

Yes it's faster but not sure I'd agree that as an overall M car it's better than an E46.

I agree how do you define better....

This is my 9th E46 M3 so I feel qualified to have a balanced view.

For me, most say its more raw and driver focused, and I agree, but thats because its older with older tech, it feels older, it is older and in essence is more raw and driver focused. I love the E46.
I don't want to wright an essay, but I know what I'm trying to say...

Lovely looking Beemers. But there is only one M3 for me and that is the E30.

Yes, e46 was one of the best although the e30 was a lovely car. The trouble is they have too much heavy sh#t in them and the e90/92 really went from a proper 3 series to something more akin to a 5 series. Too big and too heavy.

This is what you want. Shame it never came with a manual box (with dogleg - ?):-
