Look, most people here including me would not want the auto. But if one were made, who cares? Is your or my M3 going to be slower or handle different just because someone else got an auto? No? Whats the big deal?
M3 ruined just because someone else got an auto? Whats the deal? Some magical deformation when you put an M and an auto together? Who cares? Maybe you didn't notice, but the 3 comes from the 3 series, where auto's are sold in equal numbers. Oh, heaven forbid it, M3 has been ruined because 3 series are sold with autos! Lord save us!
