If that was the logic, there wouldn't be any *35 on sale in Europe. Especially so in F2x and F3x family. But they are for sale - for anybody insane enough to spend north of 70 grand on 1 or 3 series....

Unless you are going to make money signing up for races with prize money for winners in that car (especially so for M4 or Jag F-Type) you are buying it for amusement. On the other side of...

Unfortunately, the manual transmission is going away. Never to be seen again. The good news? Automatic transmission is a dead man walking. Meaning, it is as dead as MT it just doesn't know it yet -...

All true, undisputable. 8 speed AT currently in F30 is so good that is has no business being in a car that could (theoretically) cost as little as $32k. Yeah, it IS that good.

It only sucks because you are using all that gas and getting 12-14 mpg to travel 20 mph on average. It feels a LOT better when you get 9.3 mpg but with 65-70 mph on average. :)
