Noobie !

Thanks, and again, flamers go at it. Trolls too!
IMHO: I've owned a 2007 M5 E60, loved the power and handling. Was a horrible a daily driver...SMG was only good in WARP SPEED mode!

Owned a 2008 335i, loved the gas mileage. Went through 3

Currently, driving a 2008 M3 E92 LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT !

Hope this helps.

If you need the space, 335i Coupe would be your best bet. I owned one and loved it. It was 6MT, with a SSK, and KW V1 suspension. Best bang for your buck hands down. The 135i I might consider given lower cost of ownership, but I personally don't like the body style.

The only thing I'd be weary about is the fact the HPFP has never really been solved, so don't buy a used one without warranty.
