All in all: Diesel MT is a no-go. The 6cyl are either not available or no fun to drive and the 4cyl have a crappy transmission (they're not too much fun to drive either).

I'd get the 8 Speed AT.
Engine itself is not ideal too.

Im sorry but real world R6diesel + AT works best. Especially on things like X5.
