E46 or e90/92?

I'm sure this has been done ad nauseam but I'll put it out there again... I'm having trouble deciding between the e46 and the e9x. I want the most bang for the buck, with the least amount of headaches. I might do 1 or 2 track days/ hpde's annually. No smg if i get an e46 but i don't mind the dct in the e9x. Not Gonna lie, i love straight line speed too, after all, it's what we get to use most. So let me know your thoughts, this car will be my dd.

Thanks!

Drive both, get the one you like more. They're pretty remarkably different cars.

This topic pretty much just happened here:

M3post is an e9X M3 forum, so expect answers to be biased that way here. If you go to M3forum, instead (e46 m3 forum), answers will be biased the other way.

If you want low headaches on the e46, you're going to be looking for one in the $25-35,000 range. Or you could get a cheaper one and spend a couple days locking down the wear items yourself. But a cheap one ignored will not be headache free, now that they're 10-15 years old.
