Reliability is decent and if your wife wants a quiet, comfortable transport device to get to her destinations

linky no worky. Did the seller say it has SMG? If you have the VIN you can find the exact options & packages through dealer or somone who has the right access. You can also ask seller to fax the window sticker.

I never really understood the disctinction between SSG and SMG. They are both manual transmissions with an automated clutch..........it's just that SSG is slower and lacks Drivelogic. Maybe you could explain the difference?

And yes, that car shows a 6MT. Nice price though. I've been looking into 2002-onward 5-series for my mom recently but alas, they either have too many miles or too high a pricetag.

SSG is the Marelli Magnetti sequential setup. Pretty much the same as E-gear in Lambo and Cambiocorsa in Maserati. SMG is BMW's version of the seqential manual. SMG I started in the euro E36 M3's. E46 had the SMGII, SMGIII is the 7 speed in the M5 and forthcoming E92/E90 M3.
