i just got my m3 smg about a month ago.
so far i have to admit it's a great
car.. the ride is great.. the speed you
can go into turns is phenomenal, the
gear changing with the smg transmission
is is awesome.. forget about stick
shift.. and if you are stuck in traffic
roll along in automatic.. the pick up
is more then good enough if you want to
go faster..in the automatic mode. the
breaks are great and no fading even
after a few hard brake downs from high
speeds (+/-140mph to 65-80mph).. the
ride is hard but hey, if you want a
softer ride get a c-class mercedes benz
or a lexus.
SMG (with it's shift paddles,
drivelogic) and parking distance
don't get the 19's tires.. and forget
about the navigation system...
