Congrat on your 6MT and totally agreed with you on the last manual tranny on 3/4 series, traded in my F30 and pick up F80 6MT.

I know exactly what you mean .....

I'd recommend the BMS clutch stopper and the 2 codes to kill the auto revmatching.

Lovely car but why does the title say last of the manuals? BMW is going to stop making them?

Great car. I never knew black kidney grills were that expensive when ordered with the car. I ordered mine after the fact and did it myself (and Im a noob at these sort of things-lol) and it was much cheaper.

Again, awesome car and hope you enjoy it!!

Awesome car, and so cool that's M-T!
Consider getting the M Performance shift knob/boot. I think it improves the shifting experience, the throws feel a bit shorter.

scuttlebutt has it that US will not get manual transmission option after 2018 for G20 (next gen 3 series). Just the ZF 8 speed auto. At least that's my current understanding from reading all the G20 platform news. If that's inaccurate, please let me know. And if I am reading correctly, with 3 series production moving to Mexico for the North American market, that will mark the end of 3 series Euro Delivery as well???

Seems silly that they list "R6" (whatever that is)

If so, Why didnt they include "clutch pedal" in the spec sheet ?

Nice... Get them while you still can. They've already phased out 6MT for the M240. I guess the 3/4series will be next on the manual chopping block
