You get the practicality of a bigger car with the driving dynamics of a smaller car. E.g. The e39 wagon has more trunk space than the e53 x5. But, drives like a 5 series instead of an suv!

I disagree with both ends. A non sport package e30, e36, or e46 is fun to drive. The e30 318is is probably the most fun to drive e30.

For an e9x to be decent it needs sport package (or aftermarket...

My wife has an e91. It's much more similar to my e39 than the e46. It's... comfortable and refined. But it's nowhere near the e46 driving experience.

If you value tech and newness, get the e9X....

There's much more to the M3 than the S54. I'd hugely rather have an e46 M3 sedan than coupe, but I'd rather have an M3 coupe than S54 swapped sedan.

What is it-- 7% part sharing between the M3...
