Weasel will become famous soon enough
Manual trans only? Awesome! This will be a drivers car for sure.

And why do I feel the urge to slip some ones under the car cover?

Agreed. Great move to keep it more of an enthusiast car. If the next M is going to be a turbo as well, this may become the bigger M cult car.

Manual transmission only. Looks like BMW still understands the enthusiast even if they are going with turbo engines.

It was more like, keep the development and final product costs down. So no DCT. And 6-speed with N54.

Where are you hearing manual transmission only? I was at Ofest and asked Martin Berkmann about the engine and transmission and his lips were very tightly sealed.

What days were you at O'fest? It was on auto news circles by Sunday about manual tranny.

From Friday of the ALMS races through the Sunday club race - but I was without internet.

Maybe I had too many Leinenkugels that Friday night and missed the part about the tranny
