I loved the M5, but driving the SMG trans around town seems to be a huge PITA & kills any enjoyment you get from having the car unless you are mashing the gas. I don't know about you, but I don't mash the gas pedal every time I get behind the wheel.

So how do you get the SMG trans to shift pleasant enough to be able to enjoy normal driving around town?

I played w/the M Drive settings via iDrive, but nothing made it enjoyable.
I dont know if i come too late, i have never drive a e60 M5 or M6 but i have read a lot of road test about them. The smg trans always get bad reviews from everyone who'd try it. The same criticts always comeback. This is why BMW came back later whit a 6MT at last. My choice for sure!
