Thanks for the observation -- this I understand (depreciation of supercars).

I'm planning ahead some for a 2015 M5.

Any word, rumors, sites that discuss its contents? What might be added, refined, or dropped?

In particular, will manual transmission still be offered for...

I, too, am interested. The F10 6MT "single cup holder" is actually pretty worthless for holding cups, but ideal for holding my keys.

2013 550i Msport + BBS RX-R?

Just got my fresh, new 550i Msport in 6MT. I'd prefer a different look for the wheels, and might as well change out to non-runflats while they're all still new.

I *think* I've read all the forum...

I have a 2011 Audi S4 6MT now, and its lease is up this summer. Certainly super fast, but otherwise feels like an "entry-level" car -- and that sense is not improving with age. I had three E39s...

2014 550i in manual?

It's "commit" time, I guess. Is there any confirmation on whether the 550i will be available in MT in 2014 -- or not? If not, it looks like the time has come to order a 2013 550i 6MT Msport.
