Used X3 Manual Transmission - How to Find? (Vancouver)


I would love to find a BMW X3 with a Manual Transmission (2008 models and older had it as an option), but haven't been having much luck. Any ideas on where or how I should go about looking for such a rare beast?

I have been looking on Autotrader, BMW.ca Pre-Owned, and Craigslist. I would prefer one of the new models (2008, 2007) and something near Vancouver.

Thank you,

I think it was actually available through 2010.

Be patient. You're looking in all the right places but you might have to expand your search geographically into the US. Any problem buying a used car in the US and then registering it in Canada?

Just watch out, I found a lot of the AutoTrader listings for MT's were inaccurate and they were really AT's. If there are pictures you usuallly can spot the error.

I'd love to sell you mine, though it's slightly older and further away than you'd like...
