Even with the 330 ZHP, a great way to reenergize the love is to mod it. Wheels, spoilers, coilovers, plenty to do that will make it much nice for low $. "Affording" it is relative, letting the car consume all of your income just doesn't make sense.
I always targeted about $30k for a car. Really is a great point that can get you a lot of car for the money if you look well. Of course that isn't the E92 M3, but it is the E46. Good luck and at least you are double checking your decision.
So true ... this ^^^ and the e46 is a great car ... one can pick one upo in the US in great shape for zirka $30K
