Took a huge hit to trade it in for an E92 weeks after buying it.
But this makes sense considering how BMW is trying to become the German Toyota.
It's a "budget" car marketed toward younger people, I believe with around 200 hp.
FRS/BRZ are known for handling, balance, and agility not so much the speed.
If BMW uses modified platform with BMW engine with more power, I believe it could work.
But trading in a e46 is a blasphemy!
