You know the V8 was lighter than the boat anchor S54 in the E46, right?

E30 is definitely the iconic model. 1st one, blah blah. E46 was the best of the run though. Blend the two and you have the perfect BMW.

e46 for me. Great balance of size, power, handling. I know we're not talking any frankenstein cars here, but i gotta say the e36 with an s54 is awesome

My vote goes to the E46 M3. Just a beautiful car with timeless good looks. Love every curve and line on the car. And the size is perfect IMO. Also love the S54 engine. Enough power, even for today.

I've driven e36, e46, e90 and f80. Owned and tracked extensively the e46 and e90. For me it's a toss up between those 2 but lean towards the e46. Beautiful, handsome car with lots of soul.

Only owned the E46 and E92, love them both for different reasons, also drove F80 ZCP.

E30 is the most special I think. It’s the original.

E92 to me is the perfect blend of refinement, sound, practicality, and sport to me. The others are compromised with regard to these factors. E46 has way better steering and is more uncouth, but I can’t be bothered to put an exhaust on it.

F80 is ultimately too much car for the road.
