I had to travel 300+ miles to get my manual e92. I have had around 12 Bmws with 9 of them being manual. I have never broken a manual tranny and I drive cars pretty hard. I realize the auto does have some advantages but I feel a lot safer modding a manual car. These cars are not underpowered at all. I can zip around downtown Louisville without moving the shifter out of 2nd gear. On the expressway I leave it in 6th and have enough ass to pass people from 50mph on up. There really is no hunt for gears with a car this powerful. Now if this was a 1984 318i, that would be a much different story. Lol FWIW Im thinking of buying a Gmc Syclone/Typhoon which are automatics...
2007 335i, 1982 911sc, 1999 Dodge 2500 4x4 Cummins
