Look into these...

Wow, it is slim pickings in FL! I didnt see any 5-speeds, but lots of automatics. These didn't say that they were automatics, so you might wanna call and ask.

No affliation of course. When you check one out, make sure the strut towers aren't mushroomed (search thr board for more) as you won't be able to get the alignment right until its fixed. Also remove the skid plate, as it will collect any drippings from the engine, and you'll be able to see where it's leaking.

Check and ask about the crank case ventilation system, as they often drip oil and can cause strange vacuum leaks and such.

There's a back issue of Bimmer magazine that has a good buyers guide.

Good luck finding a car!
