I went from a 350z to an e46 M3 and now on my 3rd e92, all DCT. Find yourself a nice condition e9x, manual or DCT and you'll be a happy camper. You just can't go wrong.

So seriously should I take the rod bearing issue? Seems even the newer years suffer from this and I've seen some pictures here with bearing wear down to the copper after 60k miles. That is NOT promising. Will bearing replacement have to be added to the "maintenance" list? How seriously should this issue be taken? I realize many here are over 100k miles but it makes me wonder what those bearings look like...

I like to drive my M3 the way God intended: naturally aspirated, and with a stick.

Caveat: you're in your 70's and/or you have a gut.
