: Just curious why you ended up with Steptronic if you prefer manual.
The 540 is temporary until I get an M5. Knowing that I'd have the car less than a couple of years, I wanted to try the Steptronic. I like it, but not quite as well as a manual so when the M5 eventually arrives, I'll be glad for the manual again.
Kind of explains why an M3 is my daily driver and the 540 is used only when I'm hauling the family around. Maybe the M5 will convince me to give up the M3.
