Jason, I have to disagree with your disagreement about the E36 M3's steering. There have been articles about it having the best steering of any car on the road (Road and Track 1998 technical article called "WHy does the BMW M3 steer so well?"). It has perfect road feel and weighting.

WHen I drove my buddies new E46 M3 in 2001 it was much lighter and had a lot less feel than the E36. Not sure if they ever changed this during its production run.

Just defending my old girl! (98 M3 sedan).
