Nice pair there.

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


I prefer the E93, its a much better car.


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...


That to me is one of the biggest problems with the E9x series... the tech, far too many modes and settings!

Having run an E92 comp pack DCT and an E46 manual simultaneously along with a few other M cars I know what one of the two I preferred to drive in almost every scenario.

The 1M also demonstrates that you don't need to fill a car with tech to make a great M.

Loving the collection! Super rare colour for the BMWs, they look great side by side - difficult to choose which to drive though, all very different characters - especially with the cabriolet in the mix!

@bikeracer - that is a lovely pair of M cars indeed!

That got me thinking about what pair I would have. I've owned a fair few M3's, driven lots of other M's and until the E90 really loved the M division.

I think I'd go for a Z4M Coupe (only 900 or so ever made and only 120 or so sent to the UK IIRC) and an E63 M6 Coupe.

Yeah, I think that would be my ultimate pair. Question

Holy cow. In order to convince the wife that I should be allowed a single 911, I had to make a full business case with cash flow forecasting, depreciation curves and PESTLE analysis.

You're living the dream!

Nothing makes guards look boring T8 Smile primary colours always stand out.

Mine is what the result of Boba's garage having a ménage et trios would look like Thumb

The E46 is stunning.
