Are you talking about an '06 e46 coupe ? SMG is not an option on the '06
e90 sedans or the new e92 coupes......that has to tell you
something........there has been talk of BMW coming out with a 'new and
improved' version of SMG that is similar in design to Audi's DSG double
clutch transmission which many consider to be far superior......
SMG is OK, but you can't beat the real thing!
For some reason people seem to like SMG, for me I don't like it and can't
understand what people see in it. Give me a manual (or automatic in some
cases) over SMG anyday.
Well in the early days of the E36 SMG, it was a bit slow. The E46 had a
better system with the rocker switch to control how fast it changed gear (so
smooth and slow, or harsh and sporty), but I really can't understand what
the big fascination is with clutchless manuals!
In a straight line, OK, but normal road driving...
