Automatics have SOME benefits...such as driving in traffic for an extended amount of time, and also a higher resell value..?

Yea, I got an automatic this time because I'm sick of all the traffic! But, I had a manual before and I'm sure that I'll have another down the road. It's not a biggie. It serves it's purpose well ... UNLESS it's an m3... then it's NOT serving it's purpose well, lol.

=D, so would you say that converting my 325 to a stick would be worth it? Or should I just save up for an M3 down the road?

Not a chance in hell. Green is ugly IMO sorry to those of you who have them, and like eveyone has stated, auto's blow with that much power. Also price seems to low to me. I bet it has issues.

that is somewhat not true nowadays... i know before auto are expensive than manuals, but lately i've seen people (youngsters) prefer manual than automatic... that's why the value price of manuals go up... mansers!!!

bitcore will become famous soon enough bitcore will become famous soon enough
I've got 110k miles on mine... BMW engines last upwards of 400 thousand miles if you chainge the oil and take care of it....
This is sketchy... 10K for an M3? I paid 15,000 an auto 232... 323!! A de-tuned 235!
