Can I get a little off topic and it's my opinion why SMG was a badly executed design.
Would everyone admit here that in anything other than S6 mode the M6 will be beaten by quite a few cars which wouldn't stand a chance when in S6 mode. Surely that is a major failings in it's design when only the roughest of settings give the desired results.
Also with the new DCT, only S6 disconnects DSC (not sure of this being right) and in this mode the car has the most surge which will unbalance the chassis in corners when shifting.
Feel free to knock my opinions down but I don't agree with what BMW is doing and has done with their semi-automatics.
