It is a 2003.5 manual tranny convertible, so I guess I'll assume there are some rattles and light wear. I looked into the service history, and its PERFECT - oil was done early, and even Inspection 1 was done, subframe was checked. The car has 35K miles.

I guess at the core will be a slightly lighter feeling car with less power but still high revving. The e46 still seems to have a nice 0-60 time. But from a driving perspective is what I'm really interested in knowing. I searched a bit, but I am wondering what people's perspectives are on the two cars. I'm assuming there are a lot of e46 M3 converts here. So, what should I expect?
Ironically, because you're 46 is a vert and your 92 is a coupe, your 92 is actually going to be lighter than the 46
