Unless at a complete stop I dont often see the need for first gear.

The gearing is too low, 2nd tends to hook up much better from 5mph upwards.

I want an M135i but have a wedding/honeymoon to pay for. I'd get the auto without question... Better fuel economy and quicker - no brainer. I would miss heel and toeing though.
