I don't have a MT anymore, but it is not likely you will find a remote start for your car because you have to engage the clutch to start it and that can't physically be done via remote start.

Not understanding the need for remote start in the first place. BMW (along with virtually all other car makers) specifically advises against idling a cold motor. You are much better off immediately starting off and warming the car up by driving gently until the oil is up to operating temp.

And if it's heat you need, my E91 will provide heat after only 1 or 2 miles, even at below freezing ambient temps. And at lower temps, the seat heaters work just fine.

any remote start such as Clifford/Python will work for MT. You just need to leave the car in Neutral position. make sure you don't leave it in gear.

BMW's arent very friendly with remote starters. If your car is under warranty, it will be voided

Unusual question for an MT owner and of course we're all curious why you feel the necessity of a remote starter (witness protection program ). I don't think that I'm the only (former) MT owner in here who ALWAYS put his/her car in gear after parking it.

Could be quite a "muck up" if you accidently neglected to leave it in neutral with remote start. Of course it would probably just 'balk' and stall out (we hope).
