YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!! After lusting after a 3 series for almost 3 years and test driving an endless number of coupes....I finally settled for a manual transmission 98 328iS in metallic blue with less than 45K on the odo :thumbup: What can I say...it's a goergeous looking car and drives so smooth, it might as well be an electric motor :bigpimp:
Untill now my daily driver was a Miata which I really love but craved some comfort and HP.
Some initial observations by a first time BMW owner coming from a Miata.
1. The inline six has got to be the smoothest engine this side of an electric motor.
2. Incredible throttle response.
3. Superb driving position and comfortable interior.
If there is one thing I could change, it will have to be the manual shifter. It some how lacks the snick snick of a Miata...the gates just dont feel as well defined....But for that engine, I can live with any thing :angel:
