Great car, HORRIBLE TRANSMISSION
By Bob on
2009 BMW M6 2dr Coupe (5.0L 10cyl 7AM)
I should have test driven my M-6 before laying out well over 100 grand. The "automatic transmission" on this car is horrendous. Buyers remorse? Definitely. I am looking into trading it for one with a full manual transmission-or just taking my lumps and getting rid of it completely. My Chrysler 300 SRT 8 is a better driving much more user friendly vehicle. At some point more is too much. BMW definitely surpassed that point with this "F1 inspired" drive train.
Throw the advanced 7-speed SMG transmission with DRIVELOGIC into the trash bin and put a heavy lid on it with a lock. This transmission is absolutely worthless for real world street driving. A lot of BMW engineers should be unemployed.
