Your answers have been provided.

Put a clutch in the Bimmer and keep it as a daily commuter. Save your shekels and then buy a project when/if you have the means.

Awesome ill see what i can do. Yeah it just feels un-solid when driving. I think I might just stick with the bmw. Unless, I can get this 05 civic im looking at for a daily then I might just be in for the miata

A properly setup miata should feel VERY "solid". I know mine does, haha. Much much much more so than my 94 integra.
