My father-in-law found the same thing the last two times he bought a car - 
ended up with a Saab Viggen Conv the first time (only came in manual) and a 
G35 6-speed the second time (available on the lot at multiple 
dealerships...) BMW's are wonderful drivers cars (never owned one, but I 
can't begrudge,) but in automatic form I just don't get the appeal...
