How much are they? FM2 go for $100 or less these days. If you really need another body get another FM2 or an F3 for not much more. Or go classic and get an F2. I love my FM2 and used to have an FE2 but the F2 is a wonder. Unbelievable build quality and feel. Well, just my useless 2 cents. :-)

Be sure to check this site for a load of info on FE and FM:
