BMW M3 - E46 vs E92

BMW M3 - E46 vs E92

After reading so much reviews on my favourite ride - The Beemer M3, a lot of people tend to hate the 2008 E92 M3 at first glance and most of them would still stick to E46 over the new ultimate driving machine… Personally, I think E92 would be more appealing in design and of course considering what’s stocked under the hood, E92 is powered by the S65, a 4.0 L V8 engine, instead of the S54 inline-6 engine as used in the last generation E46 M3… which generally means an increase of 22% power… So, which one would you guy choose for a real sheer driving pleasure?

RM668,800.00 sup sup water lah…

it’s far cheaper than it’s cousin BMW M6…i am gettin kinda dissapointed wit BMW…the built quality is getting worse and worse.the refinement and details as you can see in every “english” car’s interior is such a dissapointment in the E46 IMO.the exterior looks very MADE IN JAPAN esp the bodykits, if u know what i mean.anyway i look forward major improvement in upcoming beemer model cz i am a big fan of beemer!

My vote E92 M3 ! :smiley:

No matter what I still the think the E92 is perfect…

It’s on my wishlist for 2008…
