Was there a 6-speed manual F10 after 2014?

(Wasn't sure where's the best place to ask this.)

It wasn't easy finding an F10 for sale with a manual transmission. I finally ended up driving 8 hours round trip to get mine. So, I'm wondering...

Does anyone here have a manual-trans F10 later than 2014? Or, do we know when the manual transmission went away (in the US market)?

I recall 2014 as the end of the era.

Interesting, is 2014 manufacturing or "in service" date ?

I thought 2013 was the last year in US, guess I was wrong.

I think the 535 got the MT for an extra year but the 550's last MT year was 2013.

The last F10 535i with a manual transmission was built on February 28, 2014.

Manual M5's were built until the end of production, but yes, lower trims didn't make it past 2014. Out of curiosity, do later 535i 6-speeds have the same synchro issues as early ones? I remember reading that the GS6-45BZ installed in F10s is extremely susceptible to developing the 2nd gear grind, but I heard they partially fixed it in F30's around 2014.
