Edmunds: 2012 BMW M5 Testing in Los Angeles With a Manual Transmission
 
1 Attachment(s)
Edmunds inside line spies grab photos showing BMW testing the F10 M5 with a manual transmission. The 6 speed, or rumored 7 speed manual, will likely be a US only option, but one that enthusiasts state side love.

Quote:

the driver grabbed a traditional gearshift lever, popped the car into reverse and backed away as we continued shooting. The reports from BMW have said that the 2012 M5 would come with BMW's dual-clutch DCT only, but rumors have been circulating that a manual was being considered for the U.S. market.

The H-pattern is covered leading some to speculate that there may be more than 6-gears, but most likely they're simply covering the M-badge.
Jump over to InsideLine.com for the full story and more pictures then let us know. Will you be ordering your M5 with DCT or manual transmission?
