Handling on an 03 M3???

i posted in the other M3 catergory but didnt really have any reponses so maybe i will have better luck in here lol but I am looking at the E46 M3's but do they handle really good in the corners, cause im wanting to build a track or and do autocrossing, so im just wondering from ppl that have on or have owned one if its a good car to start with or should i look at something else?

They say the E36 Ms are better for the track. Might be hearsay, I've never driven an E46 M so might be something to check up on.

yes its a great car adn they handle well. I have heard the e36 does handle better at the track but I have seen the e46 m3s built for track duty and they do very well. Nice 318is.
