Please remember that in the UK we get charged 20% tax on the car, so take that off and add the tax you pay locally

In the UK you can get a 435i M sport Gran Coupe in Tanzantite Blue and Individual Brown Merino Leather and Piano Black trim, IN MANUAL TRANSMISSION. Pretty much my dream color combo at this point. It's the reincarnation of that e46 330ci I could not afford back in the day.



Anyway, here's a very well deserved F you to BMW of North America.

That 20% is already included in the website MSRP or that is extra?

I predict that within 5 years or so, you'll be hard-pressed to buy any BMW in the USA with a manual transmission. The take rate keeps going down as the automatics/DCT's get better and the younger customers can afford to buy/lease BMW's.

It comes down to the requirements our government places on manufacturers for each drivetrain configuration they sell here. BMW reaches a tipping point for each model when the cost of meeting these requirements exceeds the potential profit made from the sales of manual-equipped cars.

It's too bad, as I for one enjoy driving manual-equipped cars. I've never owned a car with an automatic, other than those for my wife/kids. It's also great theft protection, as more and more potential car thieves will pass up a manual car, as they don't know how to drive one.

My hope is that if BMW decides to reduce the number of cars that you can option with a MT, they leave it in the more enthusiast-driven cars like the 35i and M3/M4. But even then, with cars becoming more powerful (the M3/M4 will reach 500+ HP one day) then MT is just going to die out because it's almost foolish to use a MT on a turbo engine with that much power and torque.

If you want a MT from BMW in the future, it's likely going to be in a MINI.

It's included in the website price. Also, the prices quoted on the website are not what you have to pay. 3 Series can be had for 15 to 20% below those prices depending on how hard you haggle. 4 Series would probably be less discount at the moment as it's still very new.

BMW, please please PLEASE give us some of those options! Manual and Merino leather are two must haves (ok, anything but Dakota) and the Tanzanite would be so nice. Yes, I will pay for them. Please.

Lets hope when that time shows up, they have put me in a pine box & lowered my down 8ft. Let those left behind suffer those pains.

Kinda fancied Melbourne red really but no idea why its not available on the 4. Based on this choice I might end up going EB2 again. Love the colour just wouldn't mind a change.
