: Let's realise that even though the folks on this board only represent a small population of the total BMW customers on the road their experience is representative of the whole population.
It is not representative of the whole population. How many female participants are on this site? (A lesser percentage than overall E46 drivers.) What is the ratio of manual to automatic transmissions in this forum? (probably a little better than the 30%/70% split that BMW figures represent in the US.) This is not a significant statistical sample.
