Hmmm, yeah, if it doesn't have the steptronic transmission it won't be quite the same. And even then, I know, it's not manual. But that V8 coupled with the, in my opinion, very impressive transmission is a lot of fun to drive! Go take one for a spin if you haven't already ... you'll be surprised. Just leave your cheque book at home if you're not ready to buy.
Only reason that one stuck out was due to the low mileage. I did a quick search, and it's hard to beat that price (for the same year and km range) across all BMW models (series).
If you can get the steptronic transmission, you can make it even more fun too ... see my post entitled "This is bad ass".
