I can't say enough about my E30 M3. The handling is amazing, and most other drivers are surprised by the performance of the car. The thing I like best about my car is that something always happens when I drive it. What I mean is - A really beautiful woman looks at the car, then me and smiles; or a punk in a civic or jetta sees my car and attempts to take me on (and loses); or another M3 driver(usually an E36) on the other side of the road flashes his lights at me - and/or runs with me if on the same side of the road - stuff like that. It makes me want to keep it forever.
Does that stuff happen with other BMWs? dunno. Maybe it will happen with the E46 M3 - we'll have to see when I get one :) btw - There aren't many E30 M3s out there, so if you see a good one - grab it.
