No. The 35is does not have a manual transmission BUT I have seen the 7 speed auto (dual clutch) referred to as a manual.

I would stay away from any BMW V8. Even the new oneís are suspect and expensive to repair. If you like the 6 series GC, look for a 640.

Recommend me non RFTs!

I swore by the DWS 06 until they got about 10k miles on them and then they got so loud that I was literally coming home with a headache every night. Great tires, otherwise.
