Mein Auto: 2006 M3 Coupe
M3 2006 smg jerks

I have a 2006 M3 with SMG.
But the car is slow when I start from stop using the auto mode. The car is like slow down alot when it changes from the first gear to the second gear. Sometimes the car even shake or rattles a little when I press the gas pedal harder from stop. I used A2 or A3 Is that common to M3 SMG? Or Am I not throttling enough as unbalance?
Can someone help??

The SMG II in the E46 M3 is a little raw and does take some time to get the feel of. The only way to top the bucking is to shift up. Personally I always keep my car in the fastest shifting mode regardless of how I am driving. The transition in and out of 1st gear is the most problematic. One owner said it best "1st gear is only to be used to get you moving" I also always let the car down shift into 1st. Don't be afraid to give it some gas, it is a very sophisticated system and was designed to perform under stress.
Have fun!
