Sorry, but no. Practically guaranteed that BMW will offer it with a 6MT. BMW sold the 2007 530ixT without a manual, but then offered a manual option on the 2008 535ixT. If they sell a car like that with a stick, they'll sell the F31 with one. The commenter who mentioned the 335d; well, that was a bit absurd, since it was BMW's first re-entry to the diesel market in the US.

The other commenter who said Audi and BMW are sticking with manuals; Audi's not, they dropped the 6MT on the B8 Avant which is why I don't own one today. And they're ditching the Avant for the allroad, now with more slushbox. And you can't get anything but an A3 in the US with DSG, you have to get the crappy autobox.

To the above poster, there are pictures ALL OVER the internet showing the cargo area of the F31.
