I hate to rub it in, but I am really impressed with the 8AT. If I paddle click fast enough, I can downshift directly from 8th to 4th.

You may want to work with BMS to retrofit a wheel with paddles and their wiring harness. It's not worth it to mod your existing wheel IMO, but it can be done. I believe the M3 wheels are easier to come by than the M Sports. I believe many M3 drivers swap to the M Sport wheel so check eBay. The M3 wheel is still nice IMO.

I used to be a MT snob. If available, I would not order a manual in the X1. I do still have my S2000 to toy around with however.
