Third Time's the Charm: The E46
The E46 is well known to many, especially if you played Need For Speed Most wanted. Being the cover car, it was the introduction to the M3 that started the fascination for tons of people. With its very distinct exhaust note, you can’t help but notice this car. Powered by the naturally aspirated straight 6 3.2-litre S54 motor, producing a very impressive 338 hp, the E46 was very unique and at the time was BMW’s most powerful production car ever produced. Dzenan Pilav is very familiar with just how fun the E46 is, with his 2003 Phoenix Yellow manual transmission example. Don’t let the looks fool you either, this isn’t some garage queen. Over the last decade Dzenan daily drives his E46, and has travelled across 13 states to move to Florida with all his belongings in the back, driven to Canada, and so much more. The M3 just continues to soldier on and looks great doing it.
