2006 M5 Product Information
 
I've got the power.

Anything, let me repeat, anything you want to know about the e60 M5....

I have the answers.

For starters....and I quote

A "6-speed manual transmission (available as of fall 2006 production)

Benefits:
Conventional shifting for customers who prefer it
Robust and fun to use

"Back by popular demand" a 6-speed manula transmission will be available in the model year 2007. As in the previous M5, it is controlled by a handsome shift knob with illuminated 6-speed pattern and M logo. As always, the transmission is designed for smooth and percise shifting, as well as long life."

Just a taste of what they have to say.

There will be a manual trasmission available for model year 2007, which will arrive in late 2006. I think only the US versions will get it.
