Your favorite attribute over the e46M

Just curious what everyone likes most over the e46M model. (Excluding the motor, of course)

I don't own an e9xM, but the thing that really does it for me are the side mirrors. They look awesome, and i think they give the car a very aggressive look because they poke out pretty far while the e46M looks pretty basic.

Look at the e46M and e9xM next to each other in a front view, and you'll see what i'm talking about

The screaming V8 in the E9X revving to 8400rpm which is worthy of supercar status.

He said that the motor doesn't count. Too bad, as that'd be my vote as well.

^^ Well in the case-the Navi is better in the current car. Let's see-strong rear subframe compared to the E46 and the advanced suspension underneath.

May this link educate how awesome the E9X is http://blogs.insideline.com/roadtest...alkaround.html

This is tough for me, because the motor is the only real attribute that I cherish over that car. If I had to pick something else, it would be front and side styling of the car.

The Enhanced Premium Sound is MUCH better than the crap the E46 came with. Also, the nav, bluetooth, EDC, steering ratio. More neutral handling stock.

The E46 is still more fun to drive though <flame suit on>. I still have mine.

no offense to anyone here, but compare the v8 of the M to a real super car sound, it really is no contest.


Have you ever heard a Murci sit at idle, in traffic? That's what I call a motor.

If i had to choose one thing to hear before i suddenly went deaf, it'd be that v12

For me it's the aggressive exterior styling and CF roof.

1) DCT is so much better than the SMG
2) Comfort, handling/ride/seats
3) Standard stereo is better than e46's enhanced HK
4) S65
5) Climate control
6) Lighting overall
7) Nav
8) Seatbelt assist
9) CF roof
10) Overall styling
