Nobody said that. Shifting just happens to be one of the many pleasures of driving.

Thanks! Only $1500 for the 328xd over the 328xi, not bad.

There was a lot of grousing about how BMW was gonna charge $4000 more than the gas engine to get the same diesel as the 320d in europe.....

Yup. I was interested in the F31 until they dropped the slushbox-only bomb.

I will never buy a fuggo GT abomination.

Nice. I think I'll be keeping my eyes out for an LCI E61 6MT in the coming year.

This is new info to me -- I thought only the 2008 E61 535xiT was available with a 6 speed manual. I did not think the '07 530xiT was, nor did I think they were offered in 2009 and later years. Did...

I would buy an F31 diesel touring w/xDrive and a stick in a heartbeat, if they'd sell it here :( Oh well, BMW's saving me money, I guess.

If you get exhausted while driving, you might want to hit the gym a bit more :)
If not your yourself, for the rest of us, get a stick! We don't need more distracted drivers!

Drop in altitude is almost certainly not much of a factor over such a long distance.

I believe typically the winds are out of the west in those areas, though, so you probably got a tailwind which...

If it's your last chance, especially, buy the stick. You won't regret it.

Saddle's a great color, though I wish it was a tad darker. Still my favorite. BMW should just jettison the 386 minitower PC beige interior entirely. It's boring AND unattractive all at once.

I've never owned a BMW (or any car for that matter) *in* warranty. My Z3M is nearing 140k.

The general feeling is, don't buy a BMW you can't afford, used, out of warranty.

If you buy it used...
