she wants a pre-facelift 328 or 330, titanium silver, grey leather, sport-premium package. she also likes the ZHP styling and i found a silver w/black leather local but it has of course a 6-spd. the engine in her car has 155k and is pretty close to dead. I am thinking about putting an M54B30 in it.
