Bumping this because I have to. I guess I'm a hardcore elitist by saying that I will never give up my inline 6 for a 4 banger.

Having said that, I would like to comment on something.

The possibility of BMW releasing a 3 series without a manual gearbox is downright ridiculous. If that happens they can bet on more people like me that will continue to drive the older models and refuse to give in to the idea that an automatic is "Joy".

The fact that there hasn't been a single shred of hard evidence as to what this car will look like (apart from renderings) is insane. If they truly are planning an unveiling late this year then its obvious that they have either completed or damn near finished the final design. Someone somewhere needs to get eyes on it.
