Given that the 335i and M3 put out exactly the same torque and have exactly the same gear rations my strong suspicion (posted this previsouly as well) is that the E92 M3 tranny is identical to the 335i MT. Our BMW insider Scott26 claimed the MT for the M3 was developed for it from the "ground up" or something to that effect. I have seen reviews state that the E92 M3 tranny is right from the E46, not sure where they got that info. from. If it came to betting I know where I would place my money. So my conclusion is that it is very likely the E92 M3 6MT is NOT 7 years old.
