Over here in Western Europe, 80% of all cars sold are manuals.

AT is considered a luxury option, that you get in expensive BMWs or Mercedes. And the likes of Ferrari/Porsche/Aston etc have it standard.

The new M3's DCT is a 4.000$ option.

Joe Average drives MT around here. Most 1-series and 3-series sold are MT.

As long as BMW keeps charging extra $ for AT, I don't see MT going away soon.
