Mein Auto: 05 C55 AMG
Need your opinion?

Here's my dilemma:
I was driving an 03 E46 M3 6-spd up until July when one of those damn Hurricanes flooded my car and totaled it. I decided on something different and got an 05 C55 AMG. It's a great car but I'm missing the awesome handling of the M3 plus the manual trasmission. The C55 has a speedshift with paddles but it is not nearly as fun as driving a manual. I've been thinking lately about either keeping the car until the 07 M3 comes out or maybe selling the C55 and getting an 03 M5. I love the M5's in every aspect. I defected to Mercedes but I want back! What would you do in my situation???
