@OP
I like both but I enjoy driving the E36M3 Euro more than the E46M3. I think you forget or do not know that the Euro e36M3 3.0 had 286HP and the e36M3 3.2 had 321HP well more around 316HP stock. Neither car will shit on the other one well maybe the e46m3 will on the usa e36M3, but not the real E36M3Euro, hell it is lighter and has the same HP. And from friends and family in the usa that are involved in motorsports, Paul Walker seems to know a little bit about motorsports.

This is around the Nürburgring Northloop as you can see the Euro E36M3 is every bit as capable as the E46M3.
8:20 --- 148.32 km/h - BMW M3 E36, 321 PS (Autocar magazine 1997)
8:22 --- 147.75 km/h - BMW M3 E46, 343 PS/1584 kg (sport auto 12/00)


Oh and on the German highways the E46M3 also has its hands full with the 3.2EuroM3 These are some Dutch guys but as you can see the E36M3 Euro wins. And I have seen similar instances with my own eyes:-)

But I do think walker's point was that the E46 has the drive by wire system, which is just another reason that cars in "this day in age" are becoming less and less driver oriented, and that the e36 M3 was more of a "raw" machine... and I think we would all agree the same is true in the comparison of the e46 --> e9x M3....

True about the numbers but you can get an E36 M3 up to E46 power levels for relatively low cost. Once you get there an E36 has a better power to weight ratio.

Look at the Euro E36 M3, its not far away from an E46 M3 in any performance statistic.
