Well I'm officially hooked. Bought a used 175,000 mile 00' 528i sport, 5spd manual about 9 months ago. You would never imagine the car had that many miles unless you looked at the odometer. Runs terrific, strong acceleration, handles like a dream. I got more than my money's worth. We were so impressed with the quality of this car, that I couldn't bring myself to buy any other make when I upgraded my wifes vehicle. Since I get the hand-me-downs...upgrades require strategy... so she is now the proud owner of an alpine white 335i M-sport!
