No manual, no sale. Looks like I'm holding onto my 2006 X3 3.0i manual/m-sport indefinitely. Either that or upgrading to a VW GTI. There are so few attractive 4-seater hatchbacks with manual transmissions in the US. I'm happy to pay ~$45K for what I want (X1 manual) like I did with my X3. But I'm not going to pay that kind of money for an automatic. I'll settle for a "lesser" car like a VW first. Maybe there just aren't enough people like me...
