That car really deserves a proper manual. I'm sorry I know the DCT is great and all but it lessens the cool factor. The cars limited production anyway it's made to be an enjoyable car to drive why not give it a manual option?

Absolutely. Gone are the days of owning a bmw forever. These are lease and release cars now from a price and quality standpoint.

Sure looks that way to me.. I love SMB.. and this looks really good as well for being a frozen color.

They are calling it Frozen Dark Blue II... so apparently there must have been a prior version..

EDIT.. I Searched and found lots of references to a BMW motorcycle- the R1200 GS - for the color FDB 1. I also found this..

http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e60...-metallic.html

I am not a fan of version one.. version II for the win

dude. DCT is faster and better than manual. Remember how people believed earth was flat and burned people who disagreed. We are sort of in the same place here.

None of that amounts to "more fun" than a manual.

by extension- would the (forthcoming) wave of self-driving cars that will lap [insert circuit of your choosing] faster than you could ever hope to, also be the better option?

Manuals are fun. Engagement is fun. Sports cars are supposed to be fun.

I honestly think it's madness spending so much money on an M3/4. There's no way this car is worth the money they're asking for it. It's just excellent marketing from BMW and fools who like to willy wave will fall for it hook line and sinker.
