      I felt in love with the E30 M3 when I was 6... I was always a fan of the BMW M divison... IMO the E30 was a legend... E36 was a miss (the north american verison was a piece of shit n I was diappointed in it)... E46 to me it was the iconic... it paved the way for the E9Xs and the F3X$.... The exterior of the E46 M3 paved the way for the later M3s... that inline 6 was just a masterpiece... the noise that engine produced wws just music to my ears... I am sad to say the M divison just don't make M cars they used to...

      SMG isn't automatic. It's the exact same 6MT transmission but with hydraulics to shift gears and actuate the clutch. Remove those and the SMG can be converted to manual w 3 pedals without even removing the transmission if you use a self-centering shifter. Not an automatic.

      I got so many correction for this guy. 5 mins into the video and I’m like w t f are you talking about. My E46M3 CS is a 2006 so obviously they didn’t stop production in 2005 and that’s not a cruise control button it’s track mode. Delete this video and re do it. You sound like you don’t know what you’re talking about bro.

      I had the e46 M3 convertible in Phoenix Yellow and that car was simply the best. The rasp of the exhaust, the acceleration was just the best. He is right when he says it is not fast, it is simply nice. I still miss that car :(
