Every car is going to be a little different and each person has their own driving habits. I tend to shift pretty notchy from 1st to 2nd but my wife manages to shift like butter somehow. :dunno:

I'm with you there. I couldn't negotiate the price much for my '09 328i E90 in stick since they're so low in supply!

I agree. If you're about spending less money and haven't had any problems, keep it. Even after another 6 years and a new generation, I'm sure your 2010 will look great. I see so many used previous...

My wife and I were in a similar situation as you.

We ended up buying a 2009 328i sedan (E90) with 24k miles for about $2k more than what you might be paying.

I feel that the power is plenty...
