2012 F10 BMW M5 to be offered with manual transmission option only in the USA?
This is a rather interesting development. With the confirmation of a Dual Clutch Transmission many were wondering if a manual would be available. We poked fun
earlier of the idea of BMW charging more for a manual transmission but it seems that may be true. The German publication Focus
reports that only the American market will get the manual transmission likely due to the CTS-V offering it. BMW has yet to confirm the report.
