This is actually a really good point. A manual transmission will greatly limit who will buy your car when it comes time to sell. You'll have to find a fanatic (like me) who will only buy a manual trans car, and there aren't too many like me (although, there are more than I thought, watching these threads).

2008 550i, Carbon Black, Black Dakota, 6MT, Sport Package, Nav, Logic7, Comfort Access, Cold Weather, Folding Rear Seats, iPod SOLD, but not forgotten
