I've had a paddle shift DSG car. The good thing about them is that they accelerate very quickly and you can use the paddles to downshift when you want. However, it is more like driving an automatic...

I doubt if the light is related to running low octane gas, although it is not a good idea. The light is indicating something else.

Autotrader allows you to set up searches based on color and transmission. Have you tried that? Stick shifts are getting hard to find, but a convertible should be an easier search than my wagon was.

Some of the E46 fanatics speak of OEM batteries lasting 10 years, but for my E46, I replaced at 8 years, even though it was not dead. It was cranking a little slower than usual, so I just replaced it...

The 2007 328 automatic that we had was the most vague shifting automatic I have seen in a BMW. You can get used to it, and the 2006 probably has the same transmission. The newer models were better,...

Unless the main real seal leaks, I don't see any reason to mess with it. Leaky rear main seals are very common on older American cars, but I've never had a BMW that leaks.
