The E46 M3 SMG is spectacular in this regard as well. I love mine. Surprisingly easy to crawl around town as well. I would recommend checking out the E46 M3 SMG. They are very cheap these days. 20-24mpg. Reasonable maintenance costs. Insane at high RPMs. One of the best looking cars ever made IMO. Wonderful raucous mechanical all intake noise with a slight hint of rasp from the rear when you get on it. Most of the SMG hate on the internet is from people who test drove it in automatic mode and rightfully hated it. M5s after the E39 have done nothing for me.
