How rare is a 4spd transmission on the 116?

I bought my 116 only due to the fact that I had never come across one in manual. It definitely helps liven up the driving experience.
Wondering how rare these are? I know lots were made and sold in Europe but I doubt many came to Canada / USA in manual or am I wrong?
Mine is a German import and therefore is seen as a gray market car. I feel like I have bitten off more than I can chew with this purchase as the car is way more analog than im use to!


W116 1977 280SEL & 1979 280SE
