There is no advantage to M.

I prefer manual (auto ISO off) for most situations when the light isn't changing rapidly. You set the exposure once and don't have to worry about a bright background or whatever fooling the meter like you do in one of the auto modes.

It would be even better if Nikon did M like Pentax, where you can link the shutter speed and aperture so that if you change one, the other changes automatically to keep the same exposure.

I don't see Nikon doing it though

Well ... possibly not.   But stranger things have happened, like Canon issuing a 1DX firmware update to finally allow exposure compensation in M mode with auto ISO.
