  • Daniel you are totally right. We were only trying to see what you could get for about that much money. I'll be bringing my e46 to a similar level as that Miata and I think the owner is game to re test next year. In the wet however, they both put a huge smile on my face and the smile stayed on me on the way home in the bimmer. The Miata isn't anywhere close to being as comfortable or dailyable (Not a word?).

  • I watched your video and I think you did an amazing job except I don't think the comparison was particularly fair. The MX5 was clearly a track prepared car where as your e46 while sporting some nice mods is clearly not an all out track car, in fact I was extremely impressed that they came even as close as they did, it was essentially an ultralight, track only car vs a 4-door 325 daily driver. I think it would be more interesting to see comparisons between cars at similar levels of track readiness rather then strictly compare cost, for instance, a stock e46 325 vs a stock mx-5 and then up from there, add suspension to each car, etc. I understand the cost factor but I don't think anyone expects a BMW to be as cheap as a Mazda and you have to consider the value of using the e46 as a track and daily vs the MX-5 being track only.

  • I used to run all manner of older BMWs. E38 Sevens (three of those), E39 M5s (had two of those) and so on. Then I got cheesed off with the E38s dropping coolant like nervous puppies and returned to more modern machinery. An E60 535d and my current F10 520d with all the bits-n-bobs demonstrate that life is more reliable these days, if a tad duller as a consequence...

  • I recently tested an MX5 against my e46 and you are right. In stock form the e46 cant stack up to a good miata. You will have to copy this link into your browser: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByiQA3J7Nls

  • Can't see how to share photos yet, but I am co-owner of an E46 330Ci semi-shed. My buddy and I use it as a track car since upgrading from an MX-5. It's really no-where near as good though. Debating now whether to add lightness or swap it for something else altogether. Next outing will be at Brands on the 17th!
