    323 manual. Automatic transmission is an automatic deal-breaker for me regardless of the car.

    haha good call.

    I would get the 323, an automatic bimmer like.. defeats the purpose (with the exception of smg2/3 :fawk: ). also an m3 auto to manual swap would cost WAY more then dumping an s52 into a manual 323, with the motor + strut mounted sways and control arms you have an m3:big grin:

    uh... to each there own I guess. :dunno:

    i'd still take the e36 m3 even with an auto tranny.. the slushbox in the e36 m3 was a very good 5-speed.
