Yeah I recently got to drive a M roadster with an S54 in it (e46 m3 engine, it was an 01) And god damn....That thing was awesome. All the straight line DOOM of an e46, and the amazing handling I feel that ythe e46 lacks. Amazing car.
That'll be my wifes car, Ill have my GT35R turbo'd e36 m3 (pushing 22 psi on built internals), my family car will be the e39 m5, my daughter gets a z4, my son gets an e46 m3, my track car will be an e36 with an LS6.
MMMMMM....*sigh* what a great life that would be.
