Hey I am sure most of you have seen Jimmy's 540i website.. I was just curious as to why he chose to have an autotragic rather than the 6 speed.. Do any of you know?

He kinda pokes fun at himself too. Look at the BMW nightmare page and go to the last car.

Target #152: SUPERCHARGED BMW 540i (E39)
BMW Nightmare Qualification: HOLY $H!T! JIMMY's car is in "BMW NIGHTMARE" too?
Verdict: Yo Fool! Where is your 6-SPEED MANUAL transmission?

Shahab, I am sorry to say, but that's the dumbest thing I've heard you say so far.

It's not really that hard to learn driving stick.

An automatic transmission allows better supercharger spool up time, and allows the secondary intercooler to destress its bicubic solar powered spooler jet blvd.

It also takes all the fun out of driving. Nothing worse than having a car with heaps of torque, kick down in a corner and start to slide.

Jimmy has many cars and bikes. He bought a Ferrari not that long ago as well. The 540i is a Dinan Supercharged toy pushing out 450+ hp and using Dinan Stage V software. That "automatic" is nothing to mess around with.....
