I stopped buying new BMW's when they stopped offering manual transmissions with their XDrives, starting with the F10. My last new BMW was and still is a fuly loaded E60 XDrive MSport 535 with a 6 speed manual. 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.
