SMG in 330Ci?

1905 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Imola Ed
Greets people,

does anybody know if the SMG that is being currently installed in the new 330Ci is different from the "classic" one, the one that had problems with sports driving?

I read somewhere that the new SMG is actually a heir of the M3 SMG II, can anybody confirm this?

Aside from the mechanical tranny difference (the trannies themselves are more or less the same as the normal ones), the 2 systems, IIRC, have totally different electro/hydraulics from each other. SMGII is from Siemens, and SSG is from Magneti Marelli, who supplies Alfa's Selespeed and its Ferrari 'F1' cousin.

Given that it's said that S1 on SMGII shifts faster than the fastest that Ferrari's system can manage, I think that says a lot. :D
