You already know what you want, so what we say won't change your mind. The last thing you want to have is regret on brand spanking new a $50k car.

Hear, hear. :thumbup: I got all the ponies out of my cars, whether they're bimmers, miatas, or civics. It's all about the revs. When you still got 800rpm to work with, there's no need to shift...

I currently own an '05 M3 and have test-driven the 335i on 2 occasions.

The 335i is just as fast as the M3. In typical driving, you won't notice the difference in power. If anything, the 335 may...

I've tried the 335 in both manual and auto, and the 328 in auto only (the dealership did not one stick 328 on the entire lot).

You can't go wrong with either transmission in the 335. Its auto is...

Anita,

Stop and go traffic can be tough on your left leg, but a stick is a lot of fun, especially on a sports car like the Z4.

Learning to drive a stick is not difficult (although mastering it...

Oh, the never ending debate...

1. How did the word "automatic" become such a taboo? In case I recall, if F1 teams could, they probably would make their transmission automatic in a heartbeat. ...

M530i? I think that's one of the few the M division released in the state to see if it could best the venerable M5. Very rare car. I want one.

2005 and 12k miles. I like SMG a lot; that's one reason why I bought the car. It makes shifting, especially downshifting, much faster and easier when you're cornering and changing lane at speed. ...

S2000 v. Z-series

Yes, I would get an S2000 over a Z3 or Z4. To me, it's a better car. Other than the M3 (which has been my favorite since the E30 days) I'm not really fond of other bimmers. S2000 has the best...

SMG or SMG II?

If it's SMG II in the M3, just push the toggle button on the shift console. If it's SMG in your 545i, then I don't know, maybe it's not possible. :dunno:
