Congrats on the 6MT wagon. Very smooth transmission on a sharp looking car. Classy color combo too.

I had to special order my 2012 E91 6MT (saddle on space gray, mine with Xdrive as I lacked the balls to drive RWD daily in rural NE Winter) and I've been enjoying every minute of the last 10 months and 21k miles behind the wheel. People don't get the 6MT up here. It's like driving a manual Odyssey. The wagon gets more road and wind noise than the sedan, but it is less bouncy over bumps and shows less oversteer on those freeway on-ramps. Sat in a 2008 the other day with 167k miles and it sounded like new with only new tires and oil changes. Not a rattle or a whine. I hope you won't want to change yours any sooner.
