My Ride: '05 E46 M3
Not Sure if I Should Sell

I'm thinking of buying the new M4 but I would have to sell my '05 E46 M3, which I love. It's 6SP manual, Interlagos Blue with Competition package. I've had several people tell me I should, under no circumstances, sell this car. Interested in hearing some opinions...

It looks great, and looks like youve taken care of it. It depends on what you want from the driving experience. The newer bimmers are undeniably fast, but they feel slower. Comparably, 70 in my E46 feels like 120 in a new F06. Do you want to simply go fast, or really communicate with the car?

Thanks, this is exactly the kind of feedback I was looking for. I haven't had a chance to drive the new M4 yet, but I will give one a spin in the next couple of weeks.

Youll kick yourself for letting this baby go if you do.

Depends on your long term plans. If you have no need to own a 10 year newer car then I'd probably skip it for now.

Regardless, I'd probably skip it at least until the second model year comes out. Demand will be lower so prices should be a little better and first year kinks should be worked out

Plus you should be able to do european delivery by then. You can also sign up for the BMW CCA and you will get a $500 rebate if you buy 1+ year from your join date. Combine the ED discount and the CCA rebate and you basically cover the airfare and a little more for 2 people to take a quick european getaway.

I'm thinking of picking up a M235i over there sometime before they do a face lift on it.

I agree with everyone else's points, but especially with this one. E46s still give you that sense of connection to the car, as if you can feel everything the car is doing just through your hands and arms. On the other hand, newer BMWs seem to have lost this a bit with the addition of different assists and electronics... In the end, the choice is yours. If I were you though, I'd keep the E46 and not think twice about it!
