Yeah this thread turned into more of a "should an E39M be your DD/only car" thread. I'm just talking about being spoiled by torque and appreciating the "new normal" that the E39M created.
I think this applies to all powerful cars, but few cars really have a home run: the right amount of power/weight, clutch/shifter combo that feels connected/unmuted, and overall driving dynamics/feel.
And I do agree that this is sort of a "pinnacle" car and that one of the best routes is to start complementing this car with something the E39M doesn't do exceptionally well in. (Light 2dr, pick up, SUV, wagons, etc)
What other cars do you guys think fit that category?
Does the E46 M3 provide ample power? (I know a few of you guys own both cars)
