Jealous. You have a lot of fun roads near you. My friend and I try to go out there driving at least once a month or so. (He's from Madison, and I am near Janesville)

As for a manual xi, yeah, good luck. What's your budget? I found one manual xi around my price range of ~$10k while looking for my car, and that was sold before I got a chance to see it. Finding a good manual e46 is bad enough with how many automatics there are out there...

Ended up getting a 5spd 323i ZSP/ZCW/HK/leather with extra rims/tires and a maintenance history going back 130k miles for $6k (first hand records to 60k, dealer records to 3k) Previous owner had fixed so many things I didn't have to even touch much for the first year of ownership.

I am assuming you are probably looking for a manual 330xi w/ZSP and maybe ZCW?
