Thing is, the M4 will not only come available in the automatic gear box configuration, the same source also says the manual will not even be available as an optional feature.

Considering how technology is evolving and how the recent trends favor efficiency, it is easy to argue that this is a natural next step for the vehicle. And with all the big changes BMW made to their car line-up, it might even be a good time for this move.
