I guess in my simple-minded and otherwise shallow view, it really doesn't matter because I've only driven three BMW sticks (my 1980 320i, which was a piece of crap, my friend's 2006 330ci, which is the sexiest and most enjoyable car I've driven, and my own 2002 325i, which is the second best.)
The 325i I own has a less touchy clutch than the new one, but either way I would never fathom the idea of buying an auto or a Steptronic instead of a real manual---regardless of the insignificant differences in the years' and models' feel.
I owned a beat up 1968 Chevy 1-ton pick-up 350 for a long time that had a 4-speed on the floor and "granny gears" in the back. 1st gear maxed out at like 7mph and 2nd wasn't much better. 4th redlined at about 75mph--and it was a blast!
Am I just still to adolescent, or is anyone else out there with me on this one?
Like I said earlier, if you have to ask someone else whether you should own a stick or an automatic, just buy the auto. You will surely love it! Save the stick for someone who really wants to drive it.
