Fortunately, the 6 speed is still available on the 5 series. For as long as that's the case, that will be my transmission of choice. The 8 speed does seem impressive for an auto transmission, though.

Now I just need to decide between i and xi .. I'm not sure 500+rwhp is a good idea without an LSD (though the 5 apparently has BMW's "e-LSD").
