The E46 drives nothing like the F80, in fact as you love your E46 I would be surprised if you liked the new M3. While the ZCP cars make over 100hp more than the E46 the driving experience you have now is more engaging. I preferred the driving dynamics of my E92 over my standard F80. The only thing that I liked more was the torque:grin2: the E92 was seriously lacking in that dept.Very interesting conclusion. If I didn't already have a M3 (albeit an older e46 which I absolutely love to drive) I may have considered the new M sedan.
