Every time I read one of these threads I think about making the switch to the E46. It is the generation that made me fall in love with the M3, I was in Detroit for the NAIAS when it was released, and I have a picture with me standing next to it, a young college engineering major saying to myself "oh yeah, this will be mine after graduation". 10 years later I bought my first M, the E92.
The thing that stops me from making this jump is the fear that I'll miss the E92 too much, but damn when I see an E46 roll down the road I drool.
