This has been for sale at a local shop where I’ve bought a bunch of cars over the years. They seek out wagons, and manuals in particular - however, they can only seek what can be found. In the absence of a manual option for the F3x generation, you can at least order every sporty option including silly little flappy paddles. Which the original owner of this car must have done:

I have no issues with my E46 and since we got a third car, it’s had a nice break. But then, it’s nice to sell a car when there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it, and still has good value - as opposed to waiting until it’s a POS and you can’t trade it for a bag of airline pretzels.

And this is pretty nearly exactly how I’d option a wagon of this generation, down to the color and everything. Hnnnnngggggg....
