You put as much money as the cars book value into it in the course of a couple years and dont consider getting rid of it because of this.

You know you're an e46 fanatic when you will purposely look for a black car to pull up behind at red lights just so you can look at your angel eyes in the reflection and them.

Or when you go smell the inside every time you go out to the garage for something else.

Or maybe I'm the only one that does that? This thread is so reassuring, I am guilty of almost everything mentioned here. Haha

You know your a e46 fanatic when everytime you step on your brakes all you worry about is the brake dust getting on your rims.

My Ride: 323i e46 SOLD!
You know when you're a fanatic when you talk your friend into buying an M3 because you talk about them so much because you want one. True story, little jealous now, but I'm still in love with my 323i.
