Thanks guys !!! The only sad point in the story is that i took all my savings to put a big down payment on the e92 and after 5 weeks my insurance company didnt even made me an offer yet

The classic "spending money before you have it" scenario. Hopefully it all gets sorted soon and you get a big cheque in the mail!

Hi guys after almost a month of driving i will give you my feedbacks

1- Gas mileage is close to the same compared to my 2 previous e46m3 !!!
2- Car is less ''raw'' and feels less sporty BUT the interior is bigger and the seats are more comfortable.
3- Power is insane compared to even my full bolt on e46m3 its day and night car still pulls hard at 180mph in 6th gear.
4- When the car is on idle its way more noisy compared to the vanos noise on the e46 !! i dont know where this sound comes from but its just more loud.
5- Brakes and handling are great even on OEM form but coilovers are the first mod ill do next month

For the rest if you guys have additionnal questions feel free to hit me up

Some more shots of the beast after a little wash

^ Thanks for the feedback, Mikee.

Pics look good as does the car. FWIW, that MRed came in second on my list, but a close second.
I like that color a lot.

It's fairly obvious you've not experienced a case of "buyer's remorse".

Are you counting down the days to fair weather?
IMO, you'll get to meet your real car once the weather is more fair. I promise.
Then you'll be bursting with delight.

Having owned and driven the car now for a bit, and knowing what you now know about the e92. If your e46 had not been involved in the fire would it be worth it making the move? I am so torn right now on getting rid of the e46 and moving into an e90.

To answer your question, i need to say no since the e46 was almost paid off !!! Now im back at a 48months payment plan but with the low canadian dollar value it would have cost almost the same to get a clean low mileage e46m3 so for me it was an easy choice knowing these circumstance i have started all back with a car that was 2hrs from my place i was easy to procede with the transaction !!
