e46 M3 reputable?

So I am in the market of getting either a E46 m3 or e90/92 m3. I love the E46 but there is one problem. I heard through many friends and including from a person who actually had a E46 m3 that the car has an extreme amount of issues and it would be a pain because it will spend more time in the shop then me driving the thing. Is this true? Let me know, help would be great!

If you don't get SMG you won't have as many issues. Also the 2006 is more reliable since its a later model and BMW managed to work out a lot of the problems

Like with most cars, it has some issues. Try to find one with low miles that's been taken care of. You won't regret it.

I have had no issues aside from regular maintenance. I am at 52k miles though.
