DCT's continue to provide the better performance numbers anyways, and the only real thing your losing is the third pedal. You also no longer need to worry about clutch replacement. The only real advantage they have is that they are harder to steal, because so few people know how to drive them nowadays lol.

as we progress through the 2020's, I can only imagine the cheaper and more "analog" BMW vehicles offering a manual.
the only newest of that bunch to take it serious is the Z4 but even then BMW has good reasons for not doing it at all

While I agree that a manual gearbox does give a much better connection with the dynamics of a car, its been on its way out for years now. Mercedes made this decision years ago and it hasn't had any long lasting impact on its sales numbers.

one more reason why i'm thankful for the classic vehicle program that MB started, making it one more avenue to still own a manual
