I still don't understand why they did it that way. I mean, I know they wouldn't sell a whole lot. I remember that I was told by BMW officials when it came out that they couldn't offer a 6-speed, because they couldn't guarantee that the manual could hold the torque, which means they were afraid that they'd be replacing a shit ton of gearboxes under warranty.

They didn't like it to much, though, when I told them they were full of shit, and then when the 335is and 1 M came out, they didn't like that I rubbed that in, either.
