OK, time for a deep breath. When the 2016 order guide first came out, I fell into this trap. Looking at the order guide, I could see 100% for the manual transmission on the 228i, and I thought the...

The M235i is a heavier and more powerful car than I wanted, and I don't think I would be persuaded to switch to it just because of the MT option. But . . . maybe so. Time will tell -- I don't have...

There's a valid point here. Still, the 228i convertible will drive very nicely in Grandma mode.

There's a contractual standard for tread depth on the tires. You can look it up. Chances are, your tires will need replacing well before 30K miles, but you can always give it a shot. On my last...

Manual Transmission UPDATED

So BMW NA is dropping the MT option on the 2, 3 and 4 series 4-cylinder cars. I'm a bit sad as that was my choice for next year. I guess it'll have to be a MINI instead.

UPDATE: Turns out this...

The ordering guide suggests that the manual and automatic transmissions are segregated by model and engine in the 228i.

Concern trolling. Laughable. Because of course you need to have the engine running when you're not using it? Why ever turn it off? Americans could easily be confused with morons.

There's a weight difference too, though. It's necessary to compare power/weight ratios to get a good apples-to-apples comparison.

2016 228i RWD is MANUAL TRANSMISSION ONLY? That's how the order and pricing guides are set up -- no AT choice, so two-pedal fans will have to choose the xDrive. If all that is correct.
