Talk to Phil Marx at BMW of Charlottesville. He keeps one of each BMW series on the lot with a manual. His dealership had the only 128i convertible in Le Mans Blue with a manual in the entire country when I was looking.
His customers buy a lot of manual transmission equipped cars, so it is quite possible to find what you want, as they take a fair number of trade-ins.

However, I'm having trouble finding a 6speed with the color combos I want
it's either the 135i has the color combo I want but it's auto
or it has the 6speed manual i want but the color is off
Exterior: Black, SG, AW
Interior: Coral Red or Black
preferably 2009+ with low mileage (under 30k)
If you guys could help me in the right direction as in which dealer (reliable or good) that would be much appreciated
