Would You Have Bought Your 1M if it wasn't available with a Manual transmission ?

Absolutely not.
That was the whole point of the 1M. It was made for the traditional bmw fan.

The 1M is the last car BMW made that was only offered in a manual transmission! : (

Kay Segler explains it best:

No way would i go for a non manual option had it existed. Ok how about this one : if the e30 M3 came with an auto box option what percentage would have been ordered in that configuration. ???
Drivers cars are for driving!!!!!!!

Yep, M6's can be had with a manual at no charge. So if you forego the amazing auto which would normally be a very expensive option but they price the car assuming everyone gets it, you can get a 6 speed for free. Its a great transmission I love and pretty unique in such a boat of a high powered car.

2014, 2015, 2016 model years i believe.

Lol I'm not old enough either, 34, and look 28ish if i'm lucky. I definitely look like I'm driving my dads car but a friends Dad(ironically) had an M6 GC, E60 M5 and a X5M. Wife made him sell one and a mint manual M Gran Coupe that experienced plenty of depreciation but only 14,000 miles made me jump on it.

Got it, instantly threw a JB in it and call it a day while my 1M is having pure stage 2 DD turbos and little mods installed seemed like a good idea.

Awesome. I thought this was only an option for the M5. That's a keeper.
