Finally I'm not the lone voice proclaiming the substantial differences that the 3.0 liter I6 coupled with a manual transmission make in the E39. A year or two back an E39 525iA owner told me that there was virtually no difference between his car and mine (and now yours) as far as acceleration was concerned and that I had wasted thousands of dollars paying for that "30" on the back of my car (and as such, I was a poseur). It was all I could do the keep myself from reaching through my computer and throttling him.
Congratulations on your new ride.

Interesting post. I was "shocked" at the acceleration difference between the 525iA and the 530i manual. Not even close. I did drive my brother-in-laws 530iA a few years back and could not tell a big difference between the two (525 vs 530) auto trannys. Your right, the manual really makes the difference and is very fun to drive. Clutch is perfect with regards to stiffness and response. Nice engineering by Munich.

has been taking since 2002 for their styling direction their sales have been up so they must be doing something right. I see plenty of 06 3 Series in NJ.
