Mate, drive both. They are fantastic cars in their own right.
I get behind the wheel of an E39 M5 and I absolutely love it! Big car, but handles so well, effortless to drive with the V8 and sounds amazing with an aftermarket pipe.
The E46 M3 is the younger brother - not as much legs up top end, but very quick through the twisties.

Both cars are well balanced, but like I said, go and drive them both.
And buy the best one you can, not the cheapest one.
