C&D reported that the only the AT will be offered in the US.
I didn't make it that far, I lost interest at 208 horsepower.

. Wrong man. Do you know why BMW put the 6 speed manual as an option on the 2006 m5 with the v10? Because Americans demanded it.
Yeah, a decade plus ago. And tens of people stepped up. Hence the reason you can't get a manual in the M5/6 anymore, just the M3.

Kudos to BWM thought, for catering to a narrow market. While not a fan, if my manual choices are limited to a BWM, I'll be driving a manual BWM.

more cars in Europe are manuals

Manual trans are approaching an all time low take rate in the US, representing about 3% of the market

The disappearing stick shift: Less than 3% of cars sold in the U.S. have manual transmissions - LA Times

Most to me implies more than half, I only know a handful of people. My wife can't even drive manual

Preach it

Absent this platform or some new development in the market, I've pretty much resigned myself to a clown car, aka STI

ANyone install one on a Convertible?

Or any FSTB on a 'vert?

Seems like this would help a lot since these 'verts have serious cowl shake.
