Most other countries you wouldnt even consider asking whether a manual 6cylinder or V8 in any body style was available with a manual. Here almost every model is available with manual. But dont even ask for a 4cylinder or a diesel, or an individual package, or a wider color option, or lemon interior......
The X3 3.0si has been and continues to be offered with the standard 6MT in Germany. The automatic gearbox is a 2100 option.

The X3 3.0sd on the other hand is automatic only, as with any other BMW equipped with the N57 motor.
