Just make sure you spend the extra money for the SMG & EDC, very well worth it! The MT is substantially slower.

We just did some very aggressive testing in my 335 Sedan, w/ a JB2 chip from Terry. We were amazed at how well the car handled with a stock suspension. We put it up against the new M3 manual and I...
