I'm new to the whole E46 world. But I am completely hooked for life! I get on this site As soon as I get home from work, and look at the same things over and over because I love looking at the cars and stuff here. Best thing I ever did was buy this ar and join this site!

- more than half your family now drives a BMW, because of your influence
2.Picture says it all. (They're also parked by year! 2001, 2002, and 2003)
3.I have my girlfriend because of my car.

definitely the best one in here. IDK if every BMW owner is as obsessed as me though. I did get the nod of approval from a guy in a clean 335Ci the other day though. He lives in the same apt complex.

When you don't need to strain your eyes trying to see what the trunk badge says on driving E46's.
