Seems as if its not the thing anymore, especially with the younger crowd.
You can probably leave the doors wide open with the keys in a manual car today, and it'll sit there for hours.
I remember when I found my 530i (2007) w a stick. I tried to act like I didn't was great. I taught a couple of girlfriends how to drive stick in that- super easy (compared to my ///m roadster at least).

I'd always drive a stick if I could.

Why are sticks going the way of the dinosaur? I don't get it???
