The list of new vehicles available with a manual transmission grows shorter each year, and for the vast majority of the driving populace, that’s just fine.

But driving enthusiasts bemoan each model lost to the advancing wave of computer-controlled everything, closely keeping tabs on which vehicles can still be had with a three-pedal setup. A few might even buy one.

Other models went two pedal-only in recent years, including the 228i, 328i, and 428i.
