I may have to keep it indefinitely, as BMW has conciously decided to not develop a replacement.When the lease was up, the dealer told me that that BMW no longer produces XDrive with manuals in the 5 series and tried hard to convince me to purchase a new SDrive stick. I just purchased back my E60 and am happy I did. Therefore, I dont think that the XDrive exclusion for a manual tranny on the new 4 series is a typo.
Truly a sad moment for purists who live in four season climates. :
