    Hello All

    Now im sure there is going to be nothing new in this topic. all stuff lots of regulars will have seen and read before but here goes.

    Ill introduce myself first off. im Gary and im 24 previous car were Saxo VTS, Civic Type R and I currently have got an s2000 and really do love the car its an 07 plate with 17k on the clock and i have had it from new.

    I am now starting to get itchy feet though and feel like i want a change. i really want to go back to a car with 5 seats (leather) something still wih good performance and sporty looking and feel.

    I have been thinking about possibly a 330ci m sport likely to be e46 as i dont think finance will stretch to a new model.
    Car seems to fit the bill in terms of what im looking for. According to performance figures it does seem there or there abouts to the s2 only 5 seats and lots of toys!

    Now come the questions for you, has anyone made the change fom s2 to 330 m sport?
    should i look for a manual or is the SSG box worth a punt?
    the reasons im looking at 330 m sport over an m3 is the running costs... is there in reality much difference in terms of cost fom a 330 & m3?

    Sorry for the long winded post. and thanks in advance for any help

    Gary
