"Once bitten, twice shy—the Bavarians remain suspicious of any kind of extensive partnership ever since the ill-fated purchase of Mini, Rover, and Land Rover took the company to the brink of disaster back in 1994."

The buying of failing European manufacturers in the 1990's almost killed off Ford, GM, and BMW. Jaguar, Rover, Mini, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Auston Martin, Saab, all should have died when the graves were already dug.
A manual transmission can be set to "comfort", "sport", and "track" modes simply by the technique and speed at which you shift it; it doesn't need "modes", modes are for manumatics that try to behave like a real 3-pedal manual transmission. If you can money-shift it, it's a manual transmission.
