So it will cost roughtly 10,000 to do it properly. I've probably invested twice that into mine over time but I've had mine since new and love not having a car payment. Love the M3 but this seemed the easier way to go for me and easier on wallet.
there are definitely positives and negatives on both sides of thinking.
think most of them have been brought up here in this thread. not everyone has the same things wanted or compromises, legal restrictions.

the 325 manual has weaker axles, driveshaft and clutch isn't as strong. it will work with these but depending on use/abuse it could cause premature failure.
