REVIEW

There are few cars as loved by enthusiasts as the BMW M3. The early e36 models have a keen following but they are somewhat fragile now (see our videos with CarThrottle for proof!) – the clever money is now in that car’s successor – the e46 M3. Using a 3.2 litre straight six engine, with a lightweight crankshaft and graphite coated aluminium pistons it revved to 8000rpm and put out 338bhp. Performance was brisk thanks to the 1450kg kerb weight, with 0-62mph taking just 5.1 seconds. But the raw numbers only tell part of the story with the e46 M3 – the engine sings and screams its way through the rev range, there’s a delicious howl from the exhausts and the steering and handling are just sublime. Add in the fact that there are four very usable seats, a bit boot and (relatively) understated looks and you can see why the e46 M3 has such a huge following… ** Cash alternative: 80% of the ex-VAT UK RRP **

Winner can choose an E46 M3 up to the value of £20,000.
