I agree the option pricing is wrong. BMW have tended to option the wagon higher by default, justifying the higher starting price, but then lowering some of the options packages. I'd be stunned if...

I wonder how many of us would need to petition them to get a stick. E91 6MTs are thin on the ground too :(

Whereabouts in the USA are you?
I still have E61 cross bars that I must have paid a fortune for, but shipping on them is so much ebay doesn't make a lot of sense.

AM/FM radio module failed?

My E61 has decided I don't have a radio any more, neither AM/FM nor HD show up in iDrive anymore or can be cycled to with the mode button. Anything I can check before booking it in to the dealer?

Totally, mine conked out the other week, dealer towed it, replaced injectors, plugs, coils and some other bits, for all six cylinders - can't image how much that would have cost out of warranty. ...

Well lets hope they F10 Wagon makes it here eventually, my lease runs to June 2011 so I'm probably out of luck anyhow. I want a stick too, so maybe the 328 wagon will be next, I'll miss the HUD etc....

6MT wagon rocks. I (surprisingly) love the HUD as I can't see the usual speedo at all - though it may require NAV and so be moot for you. M-Sport gets you the Anthracite headliner already right? ...
