It becomes an issue of money if you get an E90/E60 gen and upwards because of all the plastic/electric parts those cars use. E46/E39 and older is a safe choice if you know how to DIY

But can you reach the gas pedal with your heel because I'm pretty sure it's only possible to do with your toes

None of the injectors are shooting gas? Perhaps the ECU isn't sending the signal to the injectors, I doubt all 6 injectors can fail at the same time lol

Heel on brake pedal, Toes on the gas pedal.

Impossible to heel toe shift in E46?

The gas pedal is further back than the brake and I can't reach the gas with my heel unless I'm slamming the brakes to the floor with my toes. For a sports car it's a pretty sh*t design IMO
