The interior of the 335 I'm interested in felt and looked great, the seats are much more comfortable, yet still feel sporty. The coral interior made it feel like I was in a M3.

My M3 also looks old, the new 3 series have been out for a while now. I think the E92 is a great looking coupe. Not the mention the values of E46 M3 are falling fast... really fast!

Let me know if anyone thinks I'm crazy.
I think you got the "bug" and it can be a kind of "willful self-delusion." The only reason I have an E93 is because it is a topless toy. My real car is an S4. Now that's an upgrade on every conceiveable scale. And when the topless S5 comes out in a year or so I am trading in a flash.
