an SMG in 2003 is going to be an SMGll if you are talking M3's... smg is the non-M version that is available on the regular 3er.BrianFL said:What is the difference between SMG and SMG II? We are looking at a 2003 M3 SMG convert. with low miles...any opinions?
I recently noticed that BMW now calls it SMG, rather than SSG, in Germany as well. This is good, since now the Germans can be confused, too. We can ALL be confused!Pinecone said:Actually true SMG was on teh E36 M3 Euro only. SMG II is the version on ALL E46 M3s. SMG III is coming on the M5 and M6.
The non-M "SMG" is actually SSG, renamed to not confuse US buyers.
