I just searched high & low to locate an '06 or '07 530xiT with manual tranny :thumbup:.I would have if I didn't need to switch cars with my wife every once in a while (she drives a Honda van...5 kids). I couldn't bear teaching her how to drive a standard on my brand new 535xi (which I pick up today!). This my first car ever with an automatic...I guess I can try the step. I really wish the SAT was available on the xi.
i drove the 535xi wagon at the susan korman cancer drive and was blown away by it! I drove the 335i vert before that and the 535xi felt faster.. I played w someone in the x5 4.8i on the highway and just walked all over them. It had the sport package but it had the x5 style shifter which isn't bad..i actually like it esp in manual modeYou're not alone. Just ordered my 535xi wagon with manual.
Why do you think it takes a manual trans to get the most out of your 535?I want the most out of my 535i. that is why i ordered a manual transmission. Anyone else order one?:thumbup:
