Is anyone ordering the F10 M5 in 6-speed manual?

I was just thinking about this... since they are offering it and it is supposedly the final production run (f10s) for an available 6MT has anyone ordered one yet or seen one?

My lease probably starting in end of Nov/ beginning of Dec on my m3 for 36 months..

At the end of that lease if cash flow is still good and car is still available I'd love to get an m5 in MT.

also what are they going for monthly? id assume like 1300-1500 a month ?

I did as well. Awesome car. It's pretty depressing that this will be the last M5 in manual. Pun intended

I have driven manuals my whole life. My M3 is a manual and I love it. If I do end up getting an M5 or M6, it will be DCT. Not because I don't enjoy a manual, but because with this much power and torque and RWD, it will be a very tricky car to properly drive with a manual if you really want to use the power. You will have to use such a "feather-touch" so much of the time, that I think much of the fun will be lost. Either that, or the DSC will keep kicking in every 5 seconds.

I highly disagree. Can definitely control that if one is a good driver, no matter how sensitive, the clutch will relieve the power as well..

Oh, you certainly can control it, but the amount of thought and effort it takes to do it precisely, IMO, takes away from some of the fun. I am sure that over time, DSC technology will improve to the point that it is imperceptible in its intervention under more varied driving conditions, however we are not there yet.

I just think that different transmissions are suited for different cars. The perfect car for a proper manual IMO is a Porsche Cayman S. Moderate power, RWD, with more weight over the drive wheels. You can slam a Cayman effortlessly and it will yield a perfect balance of play and grip. If you slam an M5 in the same way, one of two things will happen. If you have the DSC on, it will be interfering every 5 seconds, or, if you have it off, you will be endlessly smoking the tires and fishtailing all over the place (not safe). DCT will allow more precise power to the ground as well as allowing you to keep both hands on the wheel while you play with your 500 lb-ft.

Manuals are fun and engaging and allow a level of sensory integration with your car that no type of automatic can. However, as you push into these stratospheric levels of power and torque, DCT just makes more sense to me. The M5 is a luxo-powerhouse. If you want a back-road burner, get something smaller, lighter, with moderate power, and then enjoy the proper manual.

i just returned from south carolina bmw performance driving school, all the instructors there uses Mt with the f10 m5 and m6, however all the e0x m3s that they provide on the tracks are all DCT.
