Love it. If they do AWD with MT I'm a 90%+ buyer (my last Touring was a 2004 325i w/MT and I still miss it).
If they do auto only, I'm a wishy-washy buyer, but will at least test drive. I have driven that powertrain combination in the X3 three separate times, and was simultaneously underwhelmed and annoyed each time.
Shoot me now, but I would definitely choose the GT over the wagon if that turns out to be the only way to get the MT. A sedan is not even an option.
