Wow, what a nice car to drive home on a weekend! You are gonna notice quite a difference and I bet you will be pleased. Take some instruction on the track, and you will be amazed what you can do!

Good Luck, and happy motoring.

The ONLY thing that we have over them is a fun hood ornament to look at when driving...and people are even removing those as a mod...this is the demise of Mercedes Benz.

Hope you enjoy it. Why did you choose the manual?

I'll be ordering a 335 convert soon and am trying to decide if I want a manual.

I chose the manual because it's just fun! I'm a bit of a purist and just cant stand automatic transmissions. I tend to start biting my nails. I made that mistake before and regretted it for 2 years following.

Also to add, i wanted to be like this smiley face

See, he's shifting!

I sold it for $23,000. It was for sale for over 8 months!! One day i decided to post it up on myspace and boom an acquaintance of mine was apparently interested. 2 weeks later he now owns the car

How is the shifting in the BMW? Some owners of newer BMWs complain about the CDV value hindering the shifting. I was just curious to get your thoughts.

Well, It's a manual, and shifts a bit smoother than the Newer C230 Manuals. VERY GOOD.

I'll get on the pix ASAP. Very busy Monday for me, so expect them later in the week.

No lag whatsoever, the sequential Twin-Turbo's help with that in a big way!

I'll tell you though, the thing is a MONSTER!!!! more powerfull than you can ever imagine!
