is subjective. That is, it depends on who you ask. In my case, I really like the stick so if I was looking to buy a used M3, I'd pay more for one with a stick rather than an SMG.

Here's a useless but interesting fact though: if I remember correctly, Ed said that he sees more sticks than SMGs in the Nurburgring.<br>

I personally would have to think twice before considering a used SMG. I may however try it in my next new car. A common theme I hear from owners and those who drive SMG cars regularly is that it wants to be driven aggressively. Given this I'd be concerned about wear and tear on a used vehicle. I suppose this can apply to stick as well but I don't hear the same comments from those who drive both about the stick "wanting" to be driven hard.

I'd love to hear thoughts on my opinion.
