The auto's have higher MSRPs, and therefore are technically worth more. But worth/value is tied directly to demand. Find me a cheaper priced, CPO, 21k miles or less, same condition 135i..... you won't. Guaranteed.

Yes, MOST people in the US like to drive auto's. I only do (for this car) since I share a car w/ my girlfriend.... sucks, but at least it can be 400+whp... so can't win them all, but can win some.
