Noice! I was torn between 6speed vs automatic, but ended up going with auto since they had one in a nearby dealer and 6 speed would've taken 3-4 months to build.

What exterior/interior combo did you get?

6MT??? Are you really convinced on that? A brand new car equipped with a vintage transmission?

100% convinced. I guess I'm an antique or old school guy. Don't get me wrong the 8 speed auto is the best auto I have ever driven. It has quick smooth shifts and is always in the right gear. I'm coming out of love hate relationship with SMG. I also have a track prepped e30 M3 which I know a heavy F10 is not but every time drive that car it puts a big smile on my face.

I feel same when driving my wife's 6MT Mini, therefore an other reason for going to the 8AT. When nostalgic you can always drive your wonderful M3!
