Cool 6 speed or SMG

Having driven my last three M3 in stick, I am itchy to order one in SMG which I have never tried. Lately, I test drove a 335 with pedal shift (even though it's not SMG) and kinda found it interesting because it's different. I am afraid that I may get tired of it after a while. Love to hear from someone who felt the same way...........

My last M3 was SMG... it was great technology and everything i loved the performance... But Stick has its own driving experience...

Just took my 6MT for some drives this wkend... and I tell you MT has its own unique qualities that SMG/DSG couldn't even come close to emulate.

I can honestly say that if you had MTs in your previous cars you will sure miss it if you get any other.

I probably will get manual, though I would consider DSG-type, but not SMG. Not sure I would want first year of a new transmission, though.
