Enthusiast topic: Should I Buy A Subaru BRZ or a BMW E46? (Road Testament)

Car project talk has filled our conversations for the past several months here at ROTL and this episode of Road Testament addresses some of what's been discussed. What would you choose between an E46 and BRZ if you're on a budget? Picking up an affordable RWD sports car is why we buy used E30s and E36s. But if you could finance a car that will need zero major maintenance for the first couple years of ownership, does that outweigh the more costly pursuit of a depreciated German hallmark? Personally, I plan on taking a test drive or two. Please leave your comments here or on our FB portal.
