I think at this point both of those statements are pretty heavy speculation. The M5 SMG tranny will basically bolt right on to the M3. I think BMW is trying to get DSG ready but may not have enough time to do so. SMG would be a great money making option that many would go for. A lot of people only want a 21st century transmission for this car.
