My 2001 330ci, manual, has 213,000 miles, and drives just great. Not sure what it'd take to get me to change for another car, this one is just perfect for me.

Intersting. I have a 5 speed 330ci, and my freeway MPG is between 31-35, depending on my speed. I once got over 500 miles on a tank, when I was able to control the speed for a long period.
