+1. amazing. very smooth, I would be so bold as it is better than an e46 M3. Getting a manual in the USA almost guarantees the need to order and wait for your car, its worth every bit of it.
The 8-speed sport auto is cool, but its just no the same experience to me. Wouldn’t trade the MT ever.
One cool thing, that I myself hope not to experience, is if you kill it accidentally it will restart on its own. (Bro-in law killed it backing into the driveway! ha)
135i M Sport Silver/Coral Red, Premium, Cold Weather, DCT.
Will be adding the PPK/Exhaust someday!
