Damn! I guess I'm not the only one. :D Seems lots are cross shopping them. Really says a lot about the Macan.

Yeah the F10 crowd is great here. F8x taking a lil time to pick up steam.

Interesting about manual getting better highway mpg. You'd think the 7 speed would get it due to the extra gear.

Beautiful. I'd want to go with S.Orange interior if I got a white M3 as well. However, I wonder about how it would age and show wear? Seems to be the only setback, as it works in an M car otherwise....

Didn't the official statistics actually state that the DCT got better highway MPG than the MT? Or did I mix them up?

Do you mean they scratch easily, like in how regular gloss black paint scratches? I assume and would accept that they'd show "curb" scratches easier, but I would hope they use some kind of paint that...

I definitely did have the seats all the way down. I'm 6'5 with long torso, so maybe more like your "average" 6'6 or '6'7 guy.

It'd be impossible for a manual to run a faster time, I'd think, though it will put a little more power to the ground, so I'm assuming it should trap higher or be a little faster at highway speeds...

"Would it" be harder to resell a manual M3? Do people typically pay down or up for it

Curious as to how it could affect resale on a car like the M3. I know on a 535i, a manual will massively limit your buyer base, but on an M3?

At the same time, I can see manual cars raising resale...

How is the body frame lacking? The F30 is much less rigid than the F10, but due to that, BMW strengthened the F80 so much, it's more rigid than the 5 Series (not sure about M5 specifically). Though...
