We at AutoGeekz love the BMW E46 M3. BMW introduced the E46 M3 to the US market in 2001. With its 3.2L high revving normally aspirated inline 6 cylinder engine boasting 333hp, it was an instant hit. Dealers had waiting lists and in some cases asked over MSRP for the early arrivals. Today some enthusiasts believe it to be the best M3 ever made. Some M car enthusiasts will claim the E30 M3 takes the number one spot but most will agree the E36, E90 and F80 don’t belong in first or second place. Although the E30 holds a special place in our hearts, the power, sound and handling of the E46 puts it squarely in the number one spot for us.
