BMW M3 E46

Overall a great car , especially at its current value. Good performance and handling and still reasonably comfortable on longer journeys even with sporty chassis and seats. Plenty of room in driving position although I wouldn't fancy being in the back. Boot is pretty poor even with rear seats down as the Amplifier is bang in the middle and restricts height. Main downside with these as they age as with all cars of their ilk is running costs currently £65 for a 60L tank of petrol that will give you 280 ish miles of motorway travelling and a lot less in the urban cycle. Plus more thing likely to go wrong: gear box overhaul £4,000, new tyres start from £400 a pair etc. Well worth getting triptronic version. Usual high quality BMW build quality.
