I had a V6 Accord that ate a transmission at 50,000 miles. Cost me $2500.00. In 1999 dollars.

That's where you are wrong. I am very sorry to hear of your issues and your poor dealer experience but for the majority of us, visits to the dealer are almost always for routine maintenance.

If you go to the BMW USA website and look under Specifications for the 2016 328i, they show the gear ratios for the MT. It is still available. I modified the thread title.

I've been driving MT cars most of my life. I'm pretty good at it. There is no way that a modern ZF 8AT will lose to a 6MT. And the links you provide show BMW's claimed times not real world car...

Of course but you are talking about the STI version of the WRX. A loaded non STI WRX with leather and nav package is under $35K. A comparable 328i is at least another $10K.

Another option is when your current tires become too worn, buy used OEM RFT's on eBay. They are readily available from verified sellers at prices far below new.

I don't think this is codeable. This (and the brake in an AT car) are required by government regulation.

100% agree.

I have CR on my Mineral Gray 2014 Sport Line and love it. No red dash which IMO is overkill. CR is very rare though. Most buyers are conservative and are fine with the black interior....

I guess I don't understand where you are coming from much of the time. You are getting a terrific new car yet most of your posts are negative towards the brand.

Huh? I have not found my BMW's to be "persnickity". You are confusing forum posts with the larger reality. And parts wear on all cars.
