Does 550i come in Manual?

The guy at the dealer said it's possible to get it in 6spd manual, but there's no option on the website?

my understanding is that only 2012 535i and 550i will have the 6 speed manual gearbox. All other variants of F10 in the USA will have the 8 speed auto. It's quite possible the configuator is wrong, as it has only been up for a week.

That's good to know.

The US 535 and 550 come standard with a manual transmission. The automatic is a no-cost option. The 550's interior image on the bmwusa.com configurator has always only shown the automatic shifter, even if the option is not selected. But it's only the image that's wrong. The 535's image is accurate.

When the F10 first came out my dealer told me I could not get a 550i with a manual and I almost bought something else

I have a manual 550i and you get a manual transmission if you do not order the automatic - there is no Manual box to tick on the order form and it is not shown on the configurator.

Right, there's no option box to tick for the manual transmission since it comes standard. You only need to tick a box for the optional automatic transmission.

Generally speaking. Ordering, operating, maintaining a BMW is more confusing than average.
