True, but there's an undercurrent of disappointment in the thread... auto vs. manual trans (which he mentioned) does not affect seat position or steering wheel. I haven't driven a convertible, but I'm guessing the seat belt height adjustment is different or non-existent compared with a sedan (choking seat belt complaint). The steering wheel does telescope so I can't figure that one out, especially if he's not on the very short side (I'm short and have no problem with steering wheel distance).

Also I think PhilH keyed in on one aspect, the fact that the "uniqueness" of his original 325 experience has worn off, and compared with other cars bjsbuds has driven in the interim, the differences aren't so great.

I love my new 330i, but I have also driven a lot of nice cars in my years and I've noticed the number of cars that get me going are much fewer. At this point, there are very few that get my attention, BMW, MB, maybe Audi. I doubt I'll go back to American, and Japanese, well...
