Thanks everyone, I have received a few offers, a couple of which were good, but I've decided to keep the car a little longer. Still hoping an M54B30 and a 6 speed come my way.

I uploaded several pics to my ad at bimmerforums, I will try to get them up here as well.

I added the mileage, sorry, I thought that was in the original ad. It's high but the car runs great.
