Nope, don't miss it one bit...because both my GTI and 911 are both manual!

The wife's X3 is automatic and I'm just bored not having to work the gears.

I'd have no interest in an automatic with a fake clutch pedal. So really you're just simulating shifting gears, which misses the point completely.

Just give me one more good manual and I'll be happy enough. I can see getting something like an LCI G87 and just call it good. Seeing as many huge markets such as China and Great Britain aren't even getting a 6MT as an option on the M3/4, I think this is a hint that the end is near.

Another only manual owner checking in. Will be a long time before I own anything without a clutch, only reason I will ditch the manuals is to go full electric.

Yep.
It's why I bought the 328i.
My GMC is nice, but I miss heel toe driving. Fixed!

I definitely do, 3 baby boys did me in and have been driving around in a VW atlas for a couple of years and will continue to do so until I can ditch at least one of my three car seats XD

Found myself on this forum because I took an interest in the G80 M3 (hopefully manual), let's see if the wife approves when the time comes lmao!

I'd love to have a manual Touring but that option wasn't offered in the states. I definitely do not feel as engaged with the motor but I don't see a manual transmission conversion happening anytime soon.

Manual all day, everyday, 2 wheels or 4 wheels.

Maybe when the day comes where I can no longer tie my own shoes, I'll switch to an electric automatic type of vehicle.

Yes, miss my 2001 e46 BMW 325i 5MT. Maybe next car will be manual. Fortunately my dad has a Z4 in 6MT that I can drive occasionally

Ended up getting a manual E39 530i for this very reason.
