Is the E46 BMW 3 Series the new budget-build Bimmer?

As far as milage goes on an e46 goes, anything around 100k will need a full cooling system, all new suspension minus springs, an oil housing gasket and a new fuel pump as I’ve see the pumps like to die right around the 120-130k mark fairly consistently. $1500-$2000 in preventive maintenance and you should only have minor repairs for the next 3 years or more on it.
