Right after the downshifts and the rev blip when the clutch is re-engaged the engine starts to rev normally again for 1 second then there is a very short pause then the engine resumes slowing down again until the gear needs to be changed??
PS: In case you didnt uderstand I know the M engines usualy blip the rev each time you downshift, thats not what im talking about.

If this is something normal them please excuse me for i have no experience with M cars.

Sounds completely normal. This doesn't sound like SMG though....it sounds like a manual tranny with someone or something doing a heel-n-toe downshift.
