I got my '01 325Ci with 24K on it here is San Diego in June of 2003 for $25K. It also has the sport package, and sunroof, but also has the HK audio and red Montana leather package, but had a manual tranny. That steptronic transmission was over $1K extra, so 22K it not a bad deal for the mileage. The steptronic I tried on an Audi A4 made it feel pretty quick, even for a 1.7L engine, so I suppose it would feel good on that 2.5.L BMW. I like the manual sometimes, but an automatic would come in handy when I'm with my girl. You get the best of both worlds with the steptronic.
