Ok so far the only car that catches mu eye is 335d. But the forums make it sound like it has Lots of stupid little issues! :(. I do like the 35k price tho.

5.0 V8
Probably gets ---- mpg's, which I'm guessing at your $ level it's just more of an inconvenience to have to stop to fill it up all the time. Don't you want a tiptronic or some sort of paddle shift gearbox? Remember you can get a tune for the 335D and it'll make more power and boatloads of torque.

I think the M3 and M5 would be in the guilty section IIRC.

I think fake tips belong in the "who the F cares?" section

Don't buy one before 2011. Unless you want a car that's 9 seconds slower at VIR. (http://www.caranddriver.com/features...to-2012-page-8)

I'm sure that makes the S5 look better.

But don't expect to keep it past 80k miles though and don't expect to do it yourself.
