    The best I have heard about since I posted the original comment is the GM 700 turbo auto box which has a 4th ( overdrive ). Using that ( still checking that it will fit ) with a high performance torque converter would improve hings especially because 1st is a much lower gear. I have been put off going full manual because of the cost / complexity. But the 6 speed you mention sounds much more interesting, perhaps there is a way after all ? Do you have any leads to find out more ?

    When I lived in Cleveland, I used to see a brown 400i nearly on a daily basis, year round. Anyone know this mysterious car?

    Out of interest how many miles is your daily commute on average?
    Been toying with buying one of these recently to use not daily but quite regular during the spring summer and fall.

    Wow, this is indeed a Zombie thread. What ever happened? I'm driving mine (24k miles) as a replacement for my e39/540i so it gets about 50 miles/week (I'm retired). I'm hoping this is enough to keep the leaks away

    15 years of daily driving would be quite the testament!
