Yes what he said. The 99 actually if properly maintained and issues addressed that are common on almost all e46; the car is amazing. I love mine and take good care of it. Sure occasionally I have to replace a part here of there. But I wouldn't really say its a money pit.
Til I started to Mod it of course...then it gets pricey, also still worth it.
Good luck and search through the threads for useful information.
