Oh! Well that is a bit of a different direction, but maybe in the end, if you can't get one car to be all the things you need, then it makes more sense to simply go for two different cars with...

No disrespect meant, but at this point I'm wondering why you're looking at BMW e46's? Don't get me wrong, I (obviously) think they're great cars, but I'm not sure if what I think makes them great...

I'd agree with that.

I know automatics in general have gotten much better in recent years, but I think with the e46 generation, and especially with the 325i, this is a case where the manual makes...

Why would it have to be a an automatic? Or are you saying you happened to find a particular 330 that is an automatic? :dunno:

Yep. There are those of us who bought an 'older' BMW back when it was brand-new, and have loved it to this very day, and have seen no reason to replace it as of yet. :dunno:

1. How many miles on the vehicle?
2. How did the car start acting that made you realize it needed the clutch?
