when we got the E46 we almost purchased a e39 530, E46 was purchased because my mom was having a mini mid life crisis and wanted something more sporty, but I think the E39 looks more elegant and refined.
First time i saw an 39 m5 i fell in love, I will never stop wanting one, along with an E30 M3, Best cars Bmw made style wise IMO.
We all get the urge...Saturday early morning...nothing to do till noon...
