if u have the means i definetly reccomend the M5. the most beatiful clutch/grearbox ever, not that ive driven many others (00 M5, 92 325, 01 M3, are the only stick ive driven) but holy crap, no wonder they charge EXTRA for it on the 540. its liek teh only car which price auto<manual.
also its like a frickin rocketship. so big yet so fast and very torquey, exlt pickup in aany gear. steering is also very nice, very natural.
1992 brilliant red 325i 5 speed.
