Also, does someone have the exact option pricing for SMG on the 2006 M3? I think it was around $2800, but I am not sure. I can only assume DCT will be more than that.
On the fence. We have seen some reasonably good mpg reports and some terrible ones as well. With the rules changing it is hard to call. As well I don't think there is any way to translate from EU to US specs. Either way simply having it in your spreadsheet would be useful, if any user thinks it will escape they could just zero out that cell or row. Sure it can be added just as easily...

SMG for the late model E46 M3 was $2400.
