so the salesman was an ass, and didn't talk to me at all, i was with my girlfriend and he didn't tell me about any features or about the power, so it was quiet in the car. the gauges are really fucked up, like they were turned 30 degrees to the left. in my car when i'm going 30mph, in this car since the gauges were really turned, i was actually going 55mph. and when i was revving 5k in my old car it's where the 3krpm line in. it's really strange. but the clutch was REALLY light, lightest clutch i've ever seen. a little TOO light, i couldn't tell when the clutch was engaging. it had wide turns too, it didn't feel so sporty. and it didn't have much power under 3000 rpm. but it was really smooth and quiet, and ok, i guess. i think i'd rather go with an A4 or 3 series, even though they cost more money. the interior is AWESOME though. i drove one with the nav, and the interior with fake wood looked GREAT. so it was an allright car. i expected more....

all depends on who your connections are...

In 2001 I got my E46 for like $22.5k @ a bmw lease return auction...

One thing I must teach you is don't buy retail. The dealers are always making at least $3k on you buying a used car.....

i love to get out of the car after having a rude salesman with me and blurt out "this car is shit compared to my car" and " how do you guys sleep at night knowing that your selling cars of this poor quality" usually i get a small rebutle and i leave laughing him, making him look the fool.
