Dear BMW NA (I'm sure your are reading these!),
My E46 wagon with 5MT is topping 160k miles in the next few weeks. I will be looking to replace this car in the next 1-2 years with another wagon that has a manual transmission. If you don't offer a manual in the F31, I will be taking my money to the used car market (e91) or to another make.
If I had my preference, I'd like my F31 with 6MT and in the 320d, dancing on the turn table at die Welt where I will pick it up!
