I know tell me about it. It is a new and improved SMG that acomplishes some of the shifting during the clutch actuations for minimum shift times. They have also removed much of the "break your neck" impluse that the previous generations of Ferarri F1 boxes were known for. Awfully impressive for an SMG type system.

Aren't they amazing? They would even make you look good, although everyone knows that girls can't drive

On the plus side, the DSG in the M3 should be even quicker and smoother! I'd still rather have the Ferrari, though...

But let me play devil's advocate a bit. Why would you have 3 new M3s? And if you have 3 new M3s you might be able to afford the 430 Scuderia AND keep the M3s as well. lol
That's obvious; An M3 sedan, an M3 coupe and an M3 vert. What more could you want? jk lol
