Why would it turn into a manual vs auto thread? Manuals have longer gears, period. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...nmission+ratio
The problem is you are comparing final drives...they are nearly the same...the manual transmission is geared lower in comparison to the auto...that's why the final drive is taller than the auto

I'm too lazy to calculate each gear from my phone, but this should help everyone understand
