Mein Auto: Black F10 coming
Arrow Only 6% of all F10 ordered with manual tranny. How many here?

According to Insideline, the take rate for manual transmission on the F10 5-series is only 6 percent of all orders so far, signaling an overwhelming preference by F10 owners for the automatic transmission.

So what does this signal for the upcoming F10 M5? Will we see a manual transmission option? If so, will the percentage of manual transmission M5's also be this low?

How many manual tranny vs. auto owners we got here?

If I was gonna get a new one, it would be a manual trans. I'm not quite done with the one I have yet.

Mein Auto: 525i
manual for me

Current drive is manual 525i 2005 Alpine white black interior. I considered trading in for the 2011 528i. However, without a manual option, I decided to keep the 2005 going. She only has 40,000 miles so I'll just wait it out.

I will not buy an automatic. Hubby drives an X5drive35d auto transmission and although it is a great car, I prefer a stick any day of the week. I don't get the point of driving an automatic BMW. Where's the fun in that?

The 535 with MT is too much car for me. So I'm waiting to see transmission choices available in the X1 next year.

Otherwise, at some point I will reconsider the 535...
