It's 2012 goddammit
I couldn't agree more. Between the watered down steering, engine noise played through the stereo system and 4,000 pound plus curb weight, a manual in the F10 M5 is too little too late. This car has gone from a nimble sports sedan to a bit of a big, comfortable autobahn cruiser. If you want an M5 with a proper manual, get an E39.
