I would love a 335d - I seriously think it's going to be the ultimate 3 series.
Mind you paddle shift is going to be more fun than step .. hmmmn .. if only it was DSG or SMG rather than automatic with paddles I'd be in.
The story is that the torque is too much for the manual box - but surely there are manual boxes in cars with ridiculous torque (e.g. TVR cerbera speed 6 is a manual isn't it?).
