Guys after having a go in an M3 gotta have one. Should I go manual or SMG2? Apparantly SMG2 is supposed to be fab way better than the first one and equally as quick as the trad 6 speed manual. The one I test drove was an SMG and it took a little while to get used to but felt pretty good (nice blip on the downchanges etc) I'm also slightly favoring the cab at the moment but I ask myself do we really get the weather? Opinions please? smashfreakB.gif

Barry, if i was to get another M3 to replace the one i have then i would probably go for the SMG box, the manual box has a long throw on the gear change and the clutch is very hard work in traffic due to the long pedal travel. SMG Cabs seem to be popular at the moment so might be the way to go

Its bad enough down here mate, with the weather, but having owned a TTR, as long as its dry, it doesn't matter how cold it is really!

My personal best was -5 degrees from Lincoln to London early one winters morning, with the roof down. (Just get a good hat, and have the heaters and heated seats on full bollocks) grin.gif

Judging from what i see at the local racetrack (Zolder, Belgium), I only have 1 piece of advice: Stay away from the SMG boxes: they break down all the time. Often 2-4 E46 M3s there, usually the ones with SMG get towed, and the manuals stop coz they get scared prolly...

Brake upgrade is a good idea BTW
