02 or 01 M3 E46?

Hey I'm 15. I drive my moms land rover lr4 right now. Never drove stick shift or anything but manual. My dad owns a exotic dealership an he told me I could get a E46 BMW 04. I want a SMG but I don't know the difference between the 6sp or SMG. What is your opinions ? I could also get a Corvette 06. But I want the BMW, haha! I'm new to this today thanks you guys!!

1st on the epic thread of flaming!

But seriously. I'm 17 and I have a 325i and it's all the car I need right now, with an M3 and no experience you could get into some trouble. Let alone a vette.

Got my m3 when I was 15 if you can handle it go for it. If you think you can't don't even think about it

I'm sixteen and have a regular three series sedan. It's great and has decent power, all that I need, anyway! Not to mention the price of my insurance, I can't imagine that anyone would want to insure a teenager in an M! All the cars you listed are great and you'll love whatever you get. Good luck!

My Ride: 2001 330ci
Im 18 and i got my 330ci when i was 17 and love it! Its still has good power but no where near as an M. Besides if your gonna get a M get a 6 speed it's much more fun and insurance might be crazy high but that might not be your concern... Anyways go for it if you want it just be safe lol its a whole different beast and get used to driving it

get a 330i or 325, I highly doubt your dad is going to want to pay a arm and a leg to do services and up keep. Plus it is way to much of a car for being 15.....
