I only drive in sport and have never driven any of my 95,000 miles on my 2013 320i in comfort mode. Even so, I regularly get over 30 mpg in my daily driving (even though I'm retired). I really...

In all my trips to Europe, it was easy to get an MT--and most Europeans seemed to prefer MT. And I was mostly in the mountains and most often in the Dolomites and French Alps so lots of MT exercise...

The last time I got a Lockton quote, it seemed pretty pricey for one day--but now of course my car's replacement cost is a lot lower!

I'm a longtime member of the local and national BMW clubs and did a lot of track events in my two previous bimmers. In those days, my insurance company covered track events as long as they were not...

My only experience with AT is in rental cars--where the experience was much less smooth than shifting my own MT. I like double-clutch downshifting and making my own decisions about when to shift.

Over 95,000 miles now on my 2013 ZSP ZMT--and I've never driven it outside the state of Washington. Since I often have passengers (since I lead three hikes a week, year round, weather permitting), I...

No more MT for BMW

It was only on this site that I learned that my next car may not be a BMW--when I learned that I will no longer be able to order my next BMW with a manual transmission. I've been driving bimmers...

So far, okay! Since I drive seven days a week, I will find out soon enough if the plug does not work!

I guess I lucked out, wtih a no-charge, back on the road, warranty! Very impressive to me, at least, that I could drive an unlimited distance on my zero-psi tire as long as I stayed under 50 mph! ...

Before I ever drove a BMW, I owned a 1986 and then a 1988 VW Jetta GLI: Recaro seats and way more fun to drive than any of my previous cars, the first of which was a 1952 Plymouth Cranbrook, with a...

So, on a new car with four miles on the clock, would you try out launch control?

I followed the driver manual and avoided high rpm when the car was new (always have, on all my bimmers) and I wait until the engine temp is up to normal before I wind it up!

I turn 75 later this year and I only drive in sport mode, and will soon go over 80,000 trouble-free and very fun miles soon, on my May 15, 2013 factory-ordered 320i, with just two options: sport...

Yes, at least in my case, back in 2013. I doubt that BMW would want to have to deal with lots of factory orders. BMW probably makes more money on the loaded cars that go to most U.S. dealerships.

I think of myself as a BMW enthusiast--which is why my last two bimmers have been factory-orders. It's so nice to be able to configure exactly the car you want--sport package, 6-MT, in my case--see...

Approaching 78,000 miles now on my May 15, 2013 320i, sport package, MT--and the only replacements have been tires. Just as much fun as in 2013! And now it appears as if BMW is not offering the...

My 'stripper' has manual seats and MT, plus sport package. No nav. I was told it was 3250 pounds.
