-when you get withdrawal from not driving it for more than like a day

-when you have at least the last 7 of the VIN memorized

-when there's always something wrong, and when there's not you sort of get a little depressed

-when you're the only one of all your friends to know what the hell Blackstone Labs is

-when you love the hell out of your car, but no one really seems to know why, cause they dont drive one

You know you're an E46 fanatic when...

When you talk about it so much your girlfriend knows that it's called an e46

You know you're an e46 Fanatic when you are a courteous driver to anyone else in an e46.

You know you're an e46 Fanatic when your family ask you why your cars always broken down and you still own it

When you sell the E30 after a 20 year obsession to buy all the parts, that you read about on here, for the E46.

Even after five years, I still stop, turn around and look at it when walking away. Here's the background on my phone.
