The auto trans are getting better, my mom has a new(est) mini cooper and its an auto and it is one of the best units I have driven and even in the manumatic mode it is way faster then her previous mini.

That said I still must have a manual trans.

i dont think its the ecu i put one in from one of the other cars that run fine and it had no affect on the way my car ran ? just about ready to go out and find another car im sick of spending money and all my time fixing them and none of the time driving them .i must say when there in running order e30's are the best but this idle issue is starting to shy me away from these cars short of getting a new engine im lost on this one i dont even know if that would do the job any more about ready to say fuck it and drive it with idle at 1500 rpms till damn thing explodes and when the people at the light next to me look at me funny becuse my car sounds like a freight train i'll look at them and start picking my nose!!!
