Sub'd to get to know the E46 motorsport community...

I'll be hitting auto-x and track day events soon, as I love a spirited drive.

2004 330Ci - dual duty with about 50 hours of track time.

I think what the E46 gains in power vs the E36...it loses because its heavier. Which is why the E36 will be the preferable platform for a long time.

My Ride: 2003 BMW 330i ZHP
I have a 2003 ZHP 330i - I autox this car (SCCA STX) and drive it a couple days per week. It is now track worthy so I will be back to the track for time trials next summer.

The E46 is not bigger and not much heavier than the E36. Here is the data I used when deciding what to replace my RSX with.

Year & Model------------------HP---TRQ--Weight--Wheelbase--OAL----OAW
2001/2/3/4/5 (E46)330i--------225--214---3285----107.3-------176----68.5
2003 330i ZHP----------------235--222---3285----107.3-------176----68.5
1998/99/00 (E36) 328ci 328i---193--206---3197----107.3-------176.7--69.2
