If you want different experiences, better to add cars to the fleet than replace the car. I'm solidly in this camp, at this point.

Is it just me or is this forum slightly insane... e46 hardly compares to a 'standard' C2S, let alone a GT3. Sure the engine revs slightly higher than a base 911 and the power is similar (at least 996/997) but the 911 is undoubtedly more sporty in every regard. Lighter, stiffer, more punchy low down (depends if you like torque or not), wayy better brakes and shifter. The e46 is awesome in that it is still practical and punches above its weight but a 911 munches it at being a sports car

@ not trading an e46 for an RS

Totally agreed. I'm looking to get myself into a 997 C2S before I'm 30 or so.

Edit: I don't plan to get rid of the e46 ever though, it is that special
