Re: Advice On How To Get Rid Of Wrist Pain When Doing Long/Aggressive Driving
Don't know, but just wanted to chime in to let you know you're not alone. I think the solution, though, is the same as with other repetitive stress injuries, which is to periodically move around, find positions that ease the strain and not keep the same exact position all the time. I would guess if you did a Google search for carpal tunnel and relief or cure, you'd find something.

Future - F10 M5 with manual transmission?
"Is it the sounds that make a BMW a BMW? A BMW is designed to be heard, felt, experienced. So our engines sing. Our steering talks back. And we insist on offering manual transmissions in nearly all our models for drivers who crave them. The result is an almost telepathic oneness with the car. Just as surely as you can hear a BMW, a BMW hears you."
