Only 6% of all F10 ordered with manual tranny. How many here?
 
According to Insideline, the take rate for manual transmission on the F10 5-series is only 6 percent of all orders so far, signaling an overwhelming preference by F10 owners for the automatic transmission.

So what does this signal for the upcoming F10 M5? Will we see a manual transmission option? If so, will the percentage of manual transmission M5's also be this low?

How many manual tranny vs. auto owners we got here?

Speak up :thumbup:

My local dealer has had a 535 on the lot for at least a month.

If I was gonna get a new one, it would be a manual trans. I'm not quite done with the one I have yet. :D

manual for me
 
Current drive is manual 525i 2005 Alpine white black interior. I considered trading in for the 2011 528i. However, without a manual option, I decided to keep the 2005 going. She only has 40,000 miles so I'll just wait it out.

I will not buy an automatic. Hubby drives an X5drive35d auto transmission and although it is a great car, I prefer a stick any day of the week. I don't get the point of driving an automatic BMW. Where's the fun in that?:)

The 535 with MT is too much car for me. So I'm waiting to see transmission choices available in the X1 next year.

Otherwise, at some point I will reconsider the 535...
