I remember watching Tyler work on that thing in the auto shop here in Ansbach. He loved that car and I know he took great care of her! You have a nice car right there!
I was kind of the same, contemplating buying a used E46 if I could find one I liked. I am glad I held out for my E92 though. You will definitely like it.
You have a tough decision to make, haha!
