I can't stress enough to skip SMG. Def look at MT cars only
I'll keep an eye out. I am not in a hurry. I have about 5 months before I have to replace my vehicle but am in a position to make a move any time between now and then.
I have been scouring ebay, autotrader, cars.com, and car gurus along with the classifieds here for about 2 weeks now trying to sort through my options...
The 135i is an interesting option, I've seem them up close and say in one, but never driven one--still I think the E46 will be my focus for now--I just need to find one locally that is an MT that I can test drive.
