Don't believe me? Go check out the competitors website and vehicle selection, then get back to me..
I can tell you with certainty the MT is my tether. I love the brand, but absent the ability to row my own cogs I would stop buying BMW's. It would force me to save the money and buy an MT GT3.
We both think alike but unfortunately, my bank account is not keeping up with my lofty ambitions..

I'm trying to branch off into expanding my knowledge of Porsches but I can't seem find an APP as condensed as Bimmerpost.

Also, forgive me if I'm wrong but from what I understand, the only manual GT3 Porsche offers is the "Touring" version, so the third pedal seems to be drying up, in all fronts, not just the BMW brand..
The regular GT3 also offers a manual option. This was not an option for one generation - 991.1 (I believe?). But due to backlash, Porsche subsequently included them in the next LCI. Also the GT3 Touring is fantastic, definitely my overall dream car to own one day.

Both you and Sedan_Clan mentioned how the MT keeps you in the BMW sphere. What do you guys think about the current feel of the MT. Sure it's not the "best", but some people make it sound like absolute sh*t with how "rubbery" and imprecise it is.
I quite like it. I've never had an issue with BMW MT's. I don't know where the comments stem from, but when it comes to feel it's hard to tell another person they are wrong when the subject matter is highly subjective.

Many people hold the S2000 MT in high regard, but I have never liked the feel of it. It felt overly mechanical to me; akin to the difference in feel between a Harbor Freight ratchet and a Snap-On ratchet. I like the smoothness of the BMW MT.
