Default How many M3's/ E36's do you/ would you own?

I currently have 1, and I love it. But I'm in a mindset where if I had an opportunity to own a second one then I would love to as well, however I find it somewhat unreasonable to have 2 of the same car haha. It would cost more money obviously and I would need to juggle for space to keep it- but at the rate these cars are selling and the prices they're selling for- I feel like if another decent example showed up then I should grab it just for possible value appreciation aspects or to just enjoy 2 of them as they're one of my favorite cars.

I currently own a 96 Coupe and a 98 Sedan. The 96 will never be sold (12years ownership and 260k miles, it’s worth nothing to anyone else), the 98 is a product/skill/project showcase car. If I had more garage space there would be more.

If you are capable of doing your own work and have the space, get another. Don’t expect to bank on appreciation value if you’re paying labor to fix it. Assuming you are buying one that needs some type of work as a well sorted example will be at the top of the price list and more of a gamble.

I sometimes almost wish they wouldn't appreciate that much. I love these cars so much that it'd be awesome if they were cheap to get still (clean examples) because I just love driving them haha. I'd have a whole collection.

Well if I’d dream out loud, I would love another. Preferably an Alpine White Sedan.

And a Touring with S50B32 swap.

But with prices atm here, that’s not gonna happen. I’m hunting for a nice M-aero optioned 328i Touring.

Have an estoril coupe and think all the time about how I'd like to pickup a techno coupe to park beside it.

It will probably be at least until she's old enough to drive before I'd get rid of mine. Shoot me a message in 12 years Sam.
No guarantees I'll be ready by then though either.

Seriously though, if I came across an LTW or a GT in a few years, or a perfectly spec'd euro spec (techno/cloth/3.2/manual/low KM) I'd pick one up and sell this after I pulled off the parts I wanted to keep. I can't understand having 2 of the same car, but its also due to life in Vancouver being one of ridiculously minimal space. Parking spots are about 30k+ here for value, and 1 bedroom condos being well over 500k, its hard to find a place to put a second car.

I own a 97 sedan, had a 325i sedan I was going to swap but I gave it to family member who needed a car. I’d buy another to daily and build mine to double as a once in while street car and road race car. Love these cars but I won’t lie, I’m not an M purist. I’d happily drive an s52 swapped 325i or 328i.
I also have an E30 though so that takes up time and space as well.
