Is it manual or smg. The manuals have a rubbery gearshift so try for an smg box. Did it have the oil change at 1200 miles? Make sure it has a pukka history.

Try the smg before parting with your hard earned. Over here the price diff is not big, sat nav and tv seem to be must have"s for most Brits. Trust me the smg is far superior and a lot more fun.

Have any of you people driven one! the smg is 110% the better car.In the UK all but the seriously insane would plump for the paddle shifter. Never dealt with an Irishman on an M3, only lesser 3 series, but most people want to drive em as they are supposed to be driven. Stewie my son be brave and visit your local dealer for a drive, then tell me the smg is shit.Dont let people put you off by trashing the early cars, the version in the cars your looking at is totally different.
