: : I have a 4 mo old M3 which I'm loving....The question is, when the E46 finally gets here, do I trade in my beloved but barely used E36 for the E46, or do I keep the E36 and get a Dinan/BMW dealer to install the Dinan SC.

: : Dinan SC will get me to 60 mph in about 4.7 sec and quarter mile in low 13s. E46 will probably be close, but a few ticks slower....But speed is only one factor in the fun equation....

: : The SC option would cost me under $10K..the E46 option would cost me about double that.

: : Tough choice.

: i know one of the car rags did some tests on a couple Dinan SCd E36 M3s. their 0-60 times and 1/4 mile times were not significantly different than stock (in fact one was SLOWER than stock)

: IMO- if you got the money, go E46
