Since there's an apparent lack of E36s on the local CL, I figured the E46 would be the next possible BMW on the list.

323i, 325i, 328i, 330i?

Should X-Drive be avoided?

How's the automatic transmission? (Yeah, yeah, I want an auto, bite me)

Reliability issues?

Sport package; does it really effect how the car handles?

What would you consider too high of mileage for these?

M3 for your assistance.
