Right i'm looking at getting a different car. I really like the look of the e36. I am looking at 325 TDS did consider but I might be having to travel further to work so the diesel is ideal. Just after common problems, opinions and the like on them. TIA Ste EDIT - A lot that i've seen are automatics. I really hate automatic cars with a passion as it takes the fun out of driving for me. Is the a lot of difference between the manual and automatic?
