There will be SMG for the new E92 M3, that's for sure. Just the first models will be all manual. And if I wanted, I could now order this third car coming here for delivery in late July / early August, since they have to keep it in the showroom for two (2) months. Those are hard cold facts straight from the dealer. I'm probably going to skip this one though, I really don't want to pay through the nose for a car that has been test driven during the break-in period. A car that's basically used demo car, for a full price. And with a manual, when SMG was the biggest thing I was expecting with the new V8.
