Correct. The avg. person on the forums who has been looking for a used 135i, lately, has been looking for 6MT. On a dealer lot, its the autos that ALWAYS sell better, and there are more of them. Sadly, the manual loving drivers has decreased in percentage from old times, especially for BMW. But there are still many...
