Well, I don't want to spend more then $42k after discount, and want a quick car, AWD or RWD. I really want the power of the 135i manual. But very nervous about problems with it. I was also kind of cramped in it. I will def. get a manual. I looked at A5 prices and I could get an A5 with the S-Line pkg and manual in my price range.
I looked at the STI, EVO, G37S and only really like the G37S. I am not into hatchbacks. I don't want a Volvo, no way. Hyundai no way. The 328xi is lacking in power, and the 335xi is out of my budget. VW's are too young looking.
