Drove 6-SMG M3's over the course of 50 miles or so in test drives before I finally gave up on SMG. I*REALLY* REALLY wanted to love SMG and though I would, but the reality wasn't as good as the fantasy.

Can't speak to other flavors of SMG, but on the M3, my opinion is that SMG is the worst of both worlds. The Hassel of a Manual with the Fun of an automatic. Not for me, but I'm sure some like it just fine.

Personally I'd take an Automatic over an SMG, and a proper stick and pedal over both. Maybe this future execution of the SMG (SMGIII?) will be better.
