Default For LSB guys...

Warning - This is very random. I've owned LSB coupe for some time and driving it each time is an event. I obviously like the driving dynamics and balance while I particularly enjoy the kind of following the color brings!

I've always been a fan of relatively lighter cars e.g. ITR, S2K, E46 over heavier alternatives e.g. G35...thoughts?

What do most E46 M3 owners move on to? Or if you already have E46 M3 what else do you keep as a fun toy?

Most of us keep the E46 M3.
Only thing I'd consider moving on to would be a 911 of some sort. Ideally I'd like to add to the garage and not subtract. CSL induction roar is too good to let go. I wouldn't mind adding a 1M if I could afford to, but I can't imagine selling the E46 M3. Even if I had a GT3 RS, I'd still want to keep the 46M.

A lot of guys just collect other M car models.

I’ve been looking at a 993 4CS or 997.2. From what I can tell, most people move onto 911s.

Original NSX with pop up headlights. The design is timeless and stands out even today.

+1, and a 2006 Evo. Maybe even an fq but now we're just talking off subject a bit. And I'm hoping to keep my E46. But that new m5 is likely really tradable.

Default For LSB guys...

Luckily I own the two cars I want.
I am sure I could think of others I wouldnít mind owning. However, the daily is quick, looks good (to me anyways ) and great on gas... when Iím not boosting .
As for the M, when Iím done with all of its goodies, will be a pretty powerful toy .

My Daily





The M (Before the work begun)




Edit. Obviously not LSB. Sorry. Off topic, lol

You just keep E46M, and add other cars, if at all possible. I have made a mistake of selling my E46Ms three times and always bought them back. My 4th one is a keeper.

Love my LSB and can't picture ever selling it!! It's my daily for a short commute but I'll need a four door most likely within the next two years and could see myself going for a E46 touring, E90 M3, or Raptor.

Would love to buy an S2K or long hood 911/912 as another fun toy though.

I mean it's not necessarily color specific but I've gone too far down the rabbit hole to sell my car. Therefore I must add more. Currently building a Z3M Coupe. Have a 2010 E83 X3 6MT as a daily. Looking for an FD RX7 or CTSV wagon to complete the garage before the real cars come in.
