M6 with 6 speed manual

Would be very interested to get feedback on anyone that has one - Primary interest is the 8250 RPM - Own 650 with manual and love in every respect , but if could change one thing is taking up the rev limit 1,000 to 2,000 RPM .

the six speed is the only way to go
drove m5's and m6's with smg and i like the 6 spd way better. It is much smoother and I feel like I am really driving the car and not playing a videao game.

When I had a steptronic I defended it from all the purists and weekend racers over the SMG and MT. Now that I have the SMG all I can say is the third pedal seems awfully stupid.

Stupid is a strong word. I think it all comes down to drivers age. Just kidding, take it easy. I was never a fan of any smg car but I do respect the technology. For guys with control issues, the third pedal is a must.:

Why use a clutch pedal when you don't have to? And when you can keep the left foot firmly planted on the dead pedal for balance and support?

We'll see how you feel when your SMG system fails and strands you. That got real old after the third time.

And driving a manual is effortless for me, while SMG requires thought. If shifts aren't almost perfectly smooth (smoother than an automatic), then I'm not happy.


The clutch pedal is important for launching, useful for car control, and allows you to do nifty things like go from forward to reverse without pre-planning. Would I like a sequential in my race car? Maybe, but not SMG. Do I want it in my street car? **** no. A clutch pedal gives me something to do with my commute.

I just prefer having a clutch, creature of habit I suppose. I have nothing against SMG nor have I ever even tried it, I just love the feel of stick and having a clutch.
