Hello Friendly Community,

I have decided that I am going to sell off my 2012 Audi A5 after three years of ownership. Thus, I get to decide what I want next! I am heavily interested in ~2011 BMW 535i with the manual trans. They range anywhere from $28,500 - $35,000 depending on mileage and options. I have never driven one with the manual, but is it safe to assume that I will love it? I am trying to find one with the M-Sport package, but they are quite the unicorn of the BMW world. Has anyone driven one of those with the manual? Also, what other schnazzy rides could I get in that same price range?

P.S. If you are interested in a 2012 Audi A5 with 38,000 miles for $31,000, please let me know. :)
