Thanks for the advice everybody! Well, I made the deal today and an M3 was actually located that matched my specs and it's headed my way. I should have it by the end of the month. I'll post up some pics when I get it.
And I decided to go DCT. I really hope I like it after the newness wears off. At least with that the wifey can drive it if she needs to. I'm sure I'll get used to DCT and all will be fine.
So now I have to start ripping the 335 apart and get my all mods off. The good news is I should have enough $$ from the sales to get a good head start on some M3 mods.
