I have a 2011 BMW 335i sedan with manual. Consider this vs. M3, as the latter is thirsty.
It's a nice contrast to the Elise. Get either the 2006 330i or the 2011 335i, as the latter has the less troublesome N55 engine. The 2007-2010 335i's have the N54, which can be modded for more power than the N55, but at the price of reliability.
I picked mine up at the BMW Welt on a trip to Europe, but used ones that are stock and have been cared for are out there. Finding one with a manual can be tough, though.
