    Used to drive an LSB 01 M Coupe...which thanks to a crazy lady in the wrong lane, now looks like this:

    I've always liked smaller cars, but I like the authoritative feel of something bigger too. My best friend has an 03 M3 6-speed, so I've driven it a bunch. I like it a lot, but after driving a new M5 SMG, I think I'd really want to go SMG for a while. I love the sound of the E39 M5 though. The M5 does sometimes seem a little dated when I look at it. The M3 looks a lot more current, and I can get Phoenix Yellow or Alpine White, or something else ridiculous (usually what I do lol).

    I would get a E39 M5. I've had both. The E46 M3 has the raspy tingy sound from the S54 which I don't like. The M5's V8 sounds a lot better with an Eisenmann Exhaust

    I own a 335i coupe and can vouch for the awesomeness. I had a JB2 tune in it for a while and it worked amazing.

    E46 M3 is quite legit.
