Thanks Richard. I'll keep that in mind!

Last year I saw a Bangle 5 series V8 with a stick shift in Ontario. I think I would have better luck saving my marriage and having a fun car with that one.

Actually, that's exactly what I'm looking at now for my "normal" car when the old benz is in storage.

There's a few manual transmissions around here. Saw a 6-Speed DINAN M-SPORT tuned one the other day and an M5 I think.

Haven't had a chance to check it out.

SP. I want a 6-speed M-SPORT Wagon. ;)

The wagons are so rare that I keep forgetting they were imported. Incredible cars!

Read the comments, the actual owner chimed in at the end to say he'd pay over $40K to have it back.

As a long time BMW guy, I can tell you those wagons are really nice - but a little cramped (I'm 6'6") which is why I opted for that 2006 X5 when opportunity knocked - it checks all the same boxes (3.0 inline 6, XDrive, 6spd true-three-pedal manual tranny, BMW handling, ride & luxury, etc) but interestingly the biggest problem with the 3's (wimpy cooling systems) isn't a problem in the X5. I still liked my M3 much better though :( (in the M3, after multiple failed cooling system components, I finally installed an all aluminum radiator, a high flow thermostat with an aluminum cover, underdrive pulley and a Stewart high flow water pump, and only a 50/50 mix of distilled water and BMW coolant - that did the trick even with daily romps to 120).

I'm still on the hunt for what I consider the best unicorn - a 2011-15 Caddy CTSv wagon with the recaros, panoramic sunroof and 6 spd stick. It will come, eventually!!
