I'm thinking of replacing my 2000 528i M-sport 5-speed manual BMW with a comparable but much newer BMW. I bought this one 3 years old and it's been a terrific car but it's getting old. I wonder if BMW even makes my kind of car anymore. And there's no point in searching for something that doesn't exist. Here are the features I'd like: â€¢ Manual transmission - 3 pedals â€¢ I6 engine (possibly an N55) â€¢ Engine with a dip stick â€¢ 2, 3, 4 or 5 series â€¢ Ideally 2 - 5 years old â€¢ Prefer a full or at least a temporary use spare tire â€¢ Prefer not to have run flat tires Is there a BMW that meets those requirements? So far the best alternative I've found is the 2018/2019 Honda Accord Sport 2.0 liter 6-speed. The Civic SI 6-speed would work except the styling is too "boy racer" for me. I have high hopes for the 2019 Mazda 3 6-speed. I like Mazda 6s too but you can't get a new one with a manual transmission anymore. I'd like a VW GTI but they're probably not reliable enough and I don't care for the dealers or the company; same goes for Audi.
