Smg

I am interested in buying a 2007 M6 Cab and I test drove one yesterday.I love the car all around except one thing,The SMG. I was extreamly upset and suprised to find out it takes 8 tenths of a second to shift.AT full throtle shifting was ok(far from good) and under normal driving conditions it was out right horrible.I know that once it is broken in I will get another 100 hp and the smg will increase in speed by 2 levels but still 8 tenths is way to long.Does anyone know if there is a software package or a company like dinia that can correct this problem.Any help would be appreciated.

The person who was showing you the car doesn't know how to drive it with SMG. Also, the difference after the car is broken in is like night and day. SMG is much faster than a conventional manual, although it still has its own idiosyncracies, as I have posted on the M5 board.

It will shift in 80 milliseconds. Which is 0.08 seconds for those who are obviously metric challenged.

Plus there are 11 different shift programs.
