I would obviously drive one before ultimately pulling the trigger, but I am pretty confident I would like it. All the reviews are positive, comparing it to the e46 m3, other than the turbo engine and just the more modern elements. That being said, I've had a 335d and 335i which were no where near as exciting and I still liked the car, just not as a dual purpose car........because it was too heavy.

Keep the E46 M3 and get this as a DD :

AND for wet track days it would serve as a great alternative. I was at a track day 6 months ago with the first two session in the wet, and one of these was driving circles around the whole field of cars. Very impressive.

I would get a GOLF R as a DD in a heartbeat. That or an S3... Basically the same cars. I say the S3 because you can rock a sedan instead of a hot hatch, it's all subjective in looks. S3 may run more because of the badge, but used might knock it down a bit.

In your situation I think a dedicated track car is a must. At least from what I see of your activity on the forums

Keep us posted, I feel like every M owner should take a look at these sorts of threads before moving on!

Love the golf R as a DD it was my top choice 2 years ago. I just couldn't wait for it and ended up with a wrx hatch. Hell I still want one.

My buddy has a MK6 Golf R as his track weapon. Stage 3 big turbo. Makes like 450 whp. He gives a lot of fast cars a run for their money.

The M2 feels nothing like the E46 M3 (then again I don't remember what a stock E46 M3 feels like).

Yes, you should drive one well before you even consider purchasing one. I like them very much, but am not head over heels for them.
