I went in to buy a 5 series and came home with a 3, for the simple reason that the 3 was far more fun to drive. End of story. Luxury features are nice to have, but not at the expense of driving...

335i M-Sport 6MT shifter

I currently have a 6MT e90 335i... non-sport. Aside from the relatively long throws, the manual is a real pleasure to drive.

Just ordered a 335i M-Sport with the Performance package I&II (Canada)...

one of the many advantages to not having iDrive is that there's a great rubber holder where the knob would other wise go. I prop my phone up there. ipod goes in the pouch underneath the armrest.

This is kind of a bummer when I think that I could have upgraded to a 335xi for pretty much the same as the cost of the 335i + runflat snow tires and winter rims.
