Looking at an E90 ///M
Been really into the E90 as of late... I'm looking at a CPO with 4K miles. 19" rims, technology package, cold weather package. 6 Spd. Manual. Asking $54,995. I'm sure that can go down by 4-6K.
However, I am a bit hesitant about the manual. I've always wanted a manual. SMG is a bit boring, and riding in my friend's e46 m3 ZCP manual has really given me the bug to get one of my own. The thing is, I have never personally driven stick, and I'm going into the dealer on saturday for a test drive. I understand the concept, having been walked through by my friend and doing a bit of research, but I have 0 behind the wheel hours. Should I just allow the salesperson to drive and get an impression from that? I don't want to damage to a 54K M3 that I don't even own yet...
I'd appreciate any personal experience / advice. I really am not interested in a DCT... but I don't want to let this deal slip away if I can get the price right.
