Moving from e46 m3 to m235i

Hi all,

I know there are plenty of "m235i vs X" threads on here and size comparison threads between the two as well, but I'm curious to see how those that made the switch from an e46 m3 (or similar) feel about their car today. Any regrets or have you already moved on to something else?

A little background: I've owned multiple M cars, but I am starting to yearn for something more comfortable. At the same time, I've not completely given up on fun. I don't care that the m235i is not a "real" M car as I do not buy cars as a status symbol. I test drove a m235i recently and I haven't been able to get it out of my mind. I love how it had actual torque and all the modern features plus the ability to switch between comfort and sport(+) was awesome. Every car I buy I DD, so the same would apply to the m235i as I do not want to own multiple cars. I only drive manuals, so the m235xi is off the table, plus I've run a winter tire setup for the past couple of years with no issues in my M's. Basically I'm trying to see if others have made the switch and after the honeymoon period have regretted it. My back and my mind say make the switch, but I still have that bit of doubt that I just can't seem to kick
