So that's what it is called! A Turbo Button!

Hmm.... the Germans are so smart. I guess the turbo is hidden when you open the hood and it magically appears when you close the hood and drive the car very hard.

lol

anyways, $600 for that car doesn't sound too bad, but it sounds like you can get it for $400 by negotiating.

well, auto's are not That bad.....Sure stick shift is nice, but are you racing the car?

Personally, there are only three reasons why stick shift is necessary:

1) Racing
2) Every guy, when he turns 16, needs to learn how to drive a stick shift
3) Prevents moron's or your blond girlfriend from driving your car without you

Anyways, that car would be a nice project car. But the 318ti will grow jealous and start giving you trouble.

You don't need a manual to learn how to drift. Plenty of ways to learn on a auto.

im sorry but autotragics really are tragic...

there are only 3 reasons NOT to have a manual.

1) your lazy
2) your old and/or brittle
3) your uncoordinated
