I guess it's time to dump mine (not)...Greenfrog drives an E60 M5, Jet, well I thought he sold his car a long time ago...Oh well, problem is there's hardly anything out there exciting to drive with a manual these days except Porsche which is out of my price range. GT3 is a dream car, a 997 which is years away from actual ownership. The little 4 bangers that Subie and Yota makes aren't for me so I'm stuck with an E46. Maintenance isnt too bad and the car is still fun to drive after 10 yrs. I'm currently at 153k and it has never left me stranded and I've done multiple trips between Sofla and ATL without a single issue. There's the new comer Lexus ISF but I'm just not ready for an automatic car as my only car, besides that the styling can be off putting. Still it is a capable contender to a V8 M3 but it's just not for me. Oh and as for Audi and the rest, I'm just not fond of their cars despite what reviews say. Then again, driving an E46 is not a bad thing; it's still one of the best affordable drivers car one can get with a manual today.
