I was bowsing Carmax for manual BMWs when I came across this M5. While most of the F10 M5s came with a DCT, this one is a bit different, it has a true manual box.


The shift knob isn’t too my tastes, but that’s not a deal breaker. I have driven an F10 M5 before, albeit with the DCT, and I found it substantially quicker than my M3 thanks to the twin turbo V8.

Unfortunately, for me to get this it would require me to offload my beloved M3, which is not something I’m willing to do. At $45k , it’s not what I’d call cheap, but it’s also not a terrible price.
