please tell me why Audi stopped producing models with a manual transmission in the American market since 2020, when there are speed lovers and connoisseurs of manual gear shifting? The main thing in Germany Audi sells its models on a manual gearbox. BMW rivals have models with mechanics in the American m2, m4,440i and German markets; do they not appreciate and respect their fans, or what's the problem? bmw probably appreciates its fans! Or is it all the demand decides?
