The ATS benchmarked the E46 but did it make an E46? No but the end result is still a fantastic car and something close to it.
I think GM benchmarked the E90 for the ATS, not the E46 .
No it was the E46, but it was a benchmark for how the car should feel to drive. It wasn't their performance benchmark though.
