Like you, I wanted the paddles / sport auto, given that almost all reviews seem based on the sport auto and that I'm coming from a 5MT and wanted the paddles. I decided the 328i offered a solid engine and didn't want to go the 335i route given the +$5,000 for comparably optioned models.
Wow, I didn't even realize that you can spec the sport auto via special order! Now I really need to seriously consider getting M Sport 328i with the sport auto! Would I need to pay the $400 special order charge for every special order feature or is it a one time fee?
