Mein Auto: '09 328i sedan, '02 525iT
What years (if any) did 528i sedan come in manual transmission?

So I have been shut down from ordering an F10 5 series sedan in a manual transmission to ultimately replace my '12 328i sedan which is a manual transmission. I now am forced to look at used cars in order to get a stick. I know the 535 came in a stick up until now ('14) but what about the 528i? I like that engine and I realize it's not a beast for the F10 sedan but it is fuel efficient and I like that.

I'm 99% sure only the 535i F10 was ever offered with 6MT. People had been disappointed when the F10 was first introduced in late 2010.
