It's an auto, which I actually prefer since I have to do a lot of city driving. With the sport mode it helps a lot when wanting to drive "more spirited". :P
I'm curious to know how much better time wise a stock manual E36 M3 would run side by side with an auto. I don't think there would be much of a diff. The manual might be a tad faster (a tenth ot two), but the sport mode of the auto shifts IMO around the same point you would a stick. The M3 auto tranny sure is silky smooth though!
