Feature Listing: 2007 BMW 328xi Touring 6MT Sport

Upon my urging, an old friend of mine in the Boston area purchased a BMW E91 Touring with a 6-speed manual gearbox after he learned his first child was on the way. His wife desperately wanted an SUV but in the end, the long roof 3er argument won. He had previously driven a 2001 325xi sedan with an automatic, and a 1992 325i sedan with a 5-speed manual and always missed the joy of rowing your own during his E46 ownership, especially when it came to the smooth gearboxes we’ve come to know from the boffins in Munich. If it’s 3 series driving quality you seek but need a bit more practicality in the mix, our reader Dave is offering his very mint 2007 328xi Touring with the Sport package and 6-speed manual gearbox. BMW isn’t offering three-pedal Tourings stateside, so now is your chance to get them while there’s still a few lower mileage examples out there.

Year: 2007
Model: 328xi
Engine: 3.0 liter inline-6
Transmission: 6-speed manual
Mileage: 66,000 mi
Price: $20,950

For sale is my cherished E91 6MT wagon that I spent over a year searching for. From my research, less than 2% of E91 wagons were sent to the US with a 6-speed. From the sounds of it, BMW NA is no longer bringing MT wagons to the US. It’s really a shame. I’d planned to keep this car forever but recently moved to a new place in San Francisco and I can’t justify the insane monthly parking rates for this thing to collect dust.

If you’re comparing the asking price to KBB then don’t bother getting in touch. These cars are unicorns. If you’re interested, contact me.

I have to agree with the seller that this car is a unicorn. I’ve seen a few in passing on the street, mostly around the New England area, as folks there like their five-doors with manual gearboxes. Beyond that, for certain BMW enthusiasts, these Tourings are quite cherished and will be for years to come. If you are in the market for one, this is the kind of example you would want to source. For sale on an enthusiast forum, well maintained, lower mileage, this E91 ticks all the right boxes.

  1. My wife and I owns similar 2007 6mt e91 328xi sport/premium/cold weather/logic7 stereo. Black with brown leather interior 72k miles at the moment. We bought it in Boston CPO. Perhaps it your friends old car? Unicorn #2?

  2. Unicorn indeed. I inquired about buying a new one at the dealer around this time. The best they could do was to ship from another dealer a few thousand miles away.

  3. Unicorn indeed. Mine (2010 6MT, RWD, sports package, leather; no x- or i-drive, no premium package) was special ordered from Munich. Four months later I took delivery via the Performance Delivery at BMW-Spartanburg. The car was parked front and center when we arrived that day. Seems the folks at BMW also appreciate the unicorn!

    Interesting how many unicorn owners visit GCFSB!

  4. we’ve had 2012 328xi touring 6mT black/cognac leather, 38k miles now, last of the breed, 5/2012 build.
    p/o had surgery, couldn’t drive MT. indeed a unicorn i looked had pined over for about 2 years, and found locally; jumped on it before the honda dealer wised up to what it had.
