Had my E46 323 for a couple of years and it's never, ever let me down. Dark blue outside, beige leather inside. Nothing too thrilling, but its been my stalwart companion and is still as tight as a drum and looking good. Bit of tidying up around 2 arches in the Spring, a good spit and polish and the old girl will have nothing to be ashamed of. Other than the ugly mug behind the wheel, yours truly.
Cheers (and sorry it's not an M5 or an exciting vintage!)
