i think what he meant was that E36 M3 *sedans* are forgotten, not E36 M3 in general. in which case, i'd loosely agree because it's the coupe that usually gets on the track, rather than the sedan.
with M3 sedan, though, BMW almost goes back to the original intent of the 3-series, and that is, to create an affordable, useful, practical yet agile and powerful sports sedan. perfect to have the best of both worlds for young dads that aren't yet ready to completely give up their "old" lives.
