I would like to see a CS or CSL in MT trim, just for the option for those who want it, but BMW might have decided that the Competition is the highest level they will offer a MT...time will tell.
I understand the logic of giving the top version of their line up the best mechanics. But for CSL, it was never in a perfect world where the SMG transmission worked perfectly like Porsche's DSG. Bottom line, SMG sucks and it sucks to see such a gem with shitty transmission.
