Thanks.
I paid $19,300, from a private party. I think I got a pretty good deal. (I'm happy with it)
The 545's are the best deal in used cars.

Both the mileage difference and the price difference is pretty much a wash. Which one do you like better? 550i is faster.

Yeah, Wesley, you're right.
An SMG is a manual trans without a clutch pedal. Steptronic is an automatic that you can control the gears if you want, but it's an automatic.

So, I took it for a 200 mile cruise over the mountains. Man, I like this thing more every time I drive it. Pulls hard, handles great, quiet and comfortable. Can't really ask for much more.

I like the SMG because it's a great blend: I live in Seattle where there is a lot of traffic and a lot of hills. My wife wanted to be able to take the car too so it just works for us.
