Ive had my SMG M3 for a few weeks now and really like it. Its a feeling of manual with alittle auto to it I guess you could say. I try to down shift before it does.. I dont like when it down shifts by it self. I thought it was going to be a challenge to learn SMG but after a few days Ive started to listen to and feel the car much like a manual and Im getting the hang of it. The hardest part for me is to remember to set the parking brake when Im done playing. Lazy mans manual but seems to shift gears much faster than I could if I had that extra pedal. Ive had the car at a few shops and a car wash ... its entertaining to see people not knowing SMG - TRY to figure out how to move the car.
