I loved the M5, but driving the SMG trans around town seems to be a huge PITA & kills any enjoyment you get from having the car unless you are mashing the gas. I don't know about you, but I don't mash the gas pedal every time I get behind the wheel.
So how do you get the SMG trans to shift pleasant enough to be able to enjoy normal driving around town?
I played w/the M Drive settings via iDrive, but nothing made it enjoyable.
I owned one for a year (DD), around town SMG is not good and will not be good. You can learn to make it better, but it is a system built for speed not town use.
