Manual Transmission 5 Series Wagon? - The Ultimate BMW Jan 13, 2016Hi All - I've been bimmerless for about 2 years now since selling me e36 M3 - looking to get back into the game. Being 6'8" with 2 kids and a dog - I really like the 5 series wagon. The challenge is that I am a bit old-fashioned and prefer a manual transmission. As for as I can tell - I have 2 options; either a 2007 530xiT or a 2008 535xiT. No Reserve: Modified 2008 BMW 535xi Wagon 6-Speed This 2008 BMW 535xi is an all-wheel-drive wagon finished in Black Sapphire Metallic over a Black Dakota leather interior and equipped with a twin-turbocharged 3 inline-six paired with a 6-speed manual transmission.
