I always thought the E46 was rather bland in stock form, espeically the sedan. The 5 was kinda vanilla as well so I would have no prorblems buying the new 5 and 3 if I could. Performance/drivability is what carried these cars.

My E46 is looking realll old.

2001 Dinan 330I 5spd (gone..what an awesome car)
2013 335i 6spd M-sport
2013 Infiniti M37S
