The e46 is a great car, but not an all out performer as the e36 M3 is. Most of the problems with the e36 cars are minor, and the M3 offers the most bang for your buck. The e46 M3 will definitely be a lot more expensive, and maybe around $50,000 nicely equiped. For 35-40K, there is no better performance car than the M3 in its current iteration. If gadgets are what you are looking for, then get the e46. If you need a big backseat, get the e46. Otherwise, its M3 every time.
