replacement car ideas...

hi all
am at the crossroads now in relation to selling my 335i.

Do I start modding my 335i (first xHP, then if that works...MHD). Or do I sell it unmolested...

In which case, what are some cars below $30k used that are manual, reliable, and sit higher than an E90?

I'm most tempted by a 2012-14 WRX hatch, but the interior is really lame.

For context I've never really appreciated the 'drivers car' that BMWs claim to be. I'm actually finding our new Xtrail more pleasurable to drive! Shock horror. I think it's just easier, more predictable throttle/gear response, and way more comfy with a smoother ride, light steering, relatively simple, and everything works...and you expect it to keep working well.

Other cars I've thought of... 2012 Golf GTI manual (like its interior, but not its unreliability...yes I had a low-mileage Golf V GTI before).

I know, neither the WRX nor GTI sit higher than a 335i, but both seem easier to just use in daily life.

But I'm stuck thinking of anything else..preferably Japanese.
