There is a special feeling behind the wheel of a BMW. It's good. Real good. I haven't driven an E46 yet, but every E36 I've taken for a spin (no pun intended) has incredibly precise steering and great feedback. A feeling of connection. The car begs you to drive faster and seek out corners.
I've driven a few fwd and quattro A4s, and that magical feeling isn't there. Still a fine-handling car, but the car doesn't feel "alive" at all.
But what do I know, I'm driving a de-contented A4!
