Any X models that come with a manual tranny?

And I don't mean Bruce Jenner
I test drove the X1 as a loaner and really liked the compact size and maneuvabilty but it lacked a manual tranny which I thought would make it perfect. Are there any US models that have them?

And of those, the E83 LCI (2007 onwards) had the higher horsepower N52 engine and still had the manual.

Apart from the E53 and E83, there are lots of BMW sedans with X drive and manual transmissions.

Manuals are becoming a rarity - order or buy one now while you can. BMW is not a fan unfortunately

The BMW NA Build your own site is currently very glitchy for me, but I don't see any manual trans X3s for "2016", even on base models, on the site...

I think manual trans Xs are only available used, or maybe a year old plus leftover.

There are a few of us here with manual trans X5s/X3s, but none of ours are 'new'.

The E53 is pretty compact compared to current SUV sizes
