It averages about 22mpg with limited use

I found out real quick that they're all 328's, and all automatic! the thing is, like my e46' I plan on keeping his car for 10ish years. And I'm thinking a S65/6spd swap would be a real option in the future. We'll see, right now I'm just pondering.
Yeah, that price point they are all going to be 328's... 335's in the 30K's and M3's in the 4K's

^^ ohh! what I was saying was that all tourings in the states are auto 328's from what I gathered... all the 335's, diesels, 6 speeds etc are across the pond.

Could be wrong

What do you mean? I didn't mean a 15-year term, lol. I meant I haven't heard anyone put down that little since the late 90s. Not if you want to make a dent on the bottom line, anyway.

I was going to ask if it's that M-swapped touring from Taiwan but that guy has too much facial hair for a Taiwanese.
