Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Steptronic has paddle shifters, but no, I ordered 6sp manual.
As to the Porsche, don't know which Porsche has the same features for the money. Reality dictates that I have a car with a back seat and a real trunk.
BTW, this was my 3d choice. First choice was a Shelby Mustang, but the dealer mark-up put that dream to rest.
Second was a C6 Corvette but wife said no. Since it didn't have a back seat and trunk I had no real chance of talking her into it.
That pretty much left the 335i.
LMAO....my wife said YES to the C6, as her everyday car, and has been disapointed all the way.
Flat batteries, and roof recalls have had the C6 in the shop for more of the last 12 months than the driveway.
Eventually the dealer gave her a caddy to drive and through in a free glass T-Tops.....but, what a lot of aggrevation!
The C6 might be an excellent choice a few years from now, right now it has too many issues to deal with.
I hate to admit it, but, German's make better cars! For the money I would buy a new Boxster or a used 911 cab. in the south :)
My 1966 Austin Healey 3000 (3 litre six cylinder) has 250 lb/ft of torque at the rear wheels at 4,500 rpm ... you're in for a hell of a ride, Lawman...

Q: Sign here, please.
James Bond: What this?
Q: It's the insurance damage waiver for your beautiful new car. Now, will you need collision coverage?
James Bond: Yes.
James Bond: Probably.
Q: Property destruction?
James Bond: Definitely.
Q: Personal Injury?
James Bond: I hope not, but accidents do happen.
Q: They frequently do with you.
James Bond: Well, that takes care of the normal wear-and-tear. Is there any other protection I need?
Q: Only from me 007, unless you bring that car back in pristine order.
American's need HP, they need performance, they need speed.
My wife drives a 600+ HP C6 Corvette, I drive a German Porsche with way less HP, way less weight, and I beat her off the line everytime to 80 mph!
So, on a race track she would have my a$$, but we don't live on a race track!
For pure acceleration Porsche beats anything, for stopping distance, Porsche beats everything, and then there is "driving fun"....totally subjective.....but, the wife wants a Porsche next!
