A great conversation; when I ordered my new E90 ZCP 6MT back in 2011, I specifically ordered the premium pack so I'd get a sunroof. As a fair weather driver, it's nice to hear that lovely S65 with the windows down and the roof open!

I had two E90's, first with a sunroof and now a IB Slicktop. Its hard to find a slick top. My main reason was also because of headroom with a helmet on. I hated having to recline a bit to not hit the roof on track days.

When I was looking I would guess 1/4 was a slicktop. Once you add MT/color choice like IB or MR its increasingly harder to run into any. I am happy I got what I got but did settle on the DCT. Although its the better transmission I do miss rowing gears. I winter beater is a 6MT so it keeps me in line!

Yep! Manual Speed Cloth seats, no NAV/I-Drive (single hump dash), 6MT, slicktop... I think the only option the car came with was "smoker's package".

In the USA delivered cars anyway, there wasn't a premium package like the normal E9x car, and the moonroof was always a separately priced option (i.e. S403A Glass roof, electrical) not included in any package (thank goodness).

My apologies; checked the paperwork again; in Canada, our "Executive Package" (ZLP) came with the sunroof among a few other goodies....

Mixed up the vernacular; premium pack is a term used by Porsche.... sorry!

Considering the 1,220 ZCP E90s in North America and the percentage of slicktops, it should be between 300-400. Likely less than half are manual.

There is only 355 6MT ZCP E90s. Unless SickFinga sees this and posts up stats, I would guess 100-150.

I will do so...but my biggest fears are when I retire in 100 years, petrol will no longer be available and m3's will've been long forgotten...I mean after the Venusians defeated the Martians and won the right to conquer the Earth and introduce us to flying carpets...

In the USA, 2013 and possibly 2012 M3's were available with the Premium Pkg.

Well, we already have how many slicktops 6MT ZCPs. If he tells us the total of slicktop ZCPs, can you deduct to find the DCT ones.

Wow, no way. I guess mine is pretty rare! E90, ZCP, slicktop, 6MT, AW/FR, do have iDrive but manual seats (would love to know how rare these are).

So to recap for future reference on 2011 E90 6MT slicktops, SickFinga confirmed here that there were 237 imported to the USA and 2 to Canada. He has confirmed above that 137 / 1 were ZCP. Hence that means there were exactly 100 non-ZCP E90 6MT slicktops imported to the USA and 1 to Canada. Interesting how the non-ZCP 6MT slicktop is actually more rare but not surprising.
