(I have an 328 MT and wouldn't have considered an AT)

I'm not running to get an F30 either, and while the new 4-cylinder doesn't seem to have many fans here, the new 8-speed AT sounds like a significant improvement over the E9x AT.

Anyway, congrats on your purchase. E9x 328s are fine cars in any form, despite the general 335 crew opinion here
