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 sounds like a manual tranny with someone or something doing a heel-n-toe downshift.
