In defense of the RoW RHD, most countries like India rarely get a manual option - E92/E93 stock cars were all DCT and if you ordered a manual, well it was a 6 month wait. Rarely, does anyone order a car here.
No manuals for any other E series cars (including the Z4
) or the new F series cars either. Almost like BMW doesn't want to make/sell manuals anymore.
