For me, the aughts’ defining car will forever be immortalized on the box art of the best Need For Speed ​​game of all time: the E46 BMW M3 on the cover of the original NFS: MW. It was and still is one of the sexiest cars of that decade, and everyone wanted a part: your dentist (for the money), the 36-year-old gym guy in the upside-down Abercrombie hat (for the sake of it). vanity) and enthusiasts (for performance).

Additionally, its grille has another defining moniker of the 2000s, the Atkins Diet, which explains why it’s only 1/100th the size of a modern M3.

At that time, I seriously inquired about the 3-series coupe, especially the most advanced version, the M3 E46. But not for the above reason but because it is cheaper than the Skyline GT-R R34.

It is cheaper and quite nice looking, making it a very attractive alternative like the German version of Skyline

Even the current price of a used M3 E46 is much more affordable than the Skyline GT-R R34 which will definitely be on my future list

They are not wrong. According to, the average used price of an E46 over the past year is $32,494compare with $219,041 for everyone to love Fast and furious star. The convertible example is even cheaper!
