So what trannies will be offered in place of the smg. Also are the M^ and M5 dropping SMG too?

So why are we not getting that rear diffuser? So far every Mcar from 2000 on has had the same front and rear diffusers in all countries. Why the change? Even the current M5/6 all have the same exteriors all over the world. Doesnt make sense.

That sucks that the carbon roof is only for CSL. Is it to keep cost down?

So are you saying a CSL is definately coming to the states but a year or so later
Carbon roof is to reduce weight. CSL is coming to US for sure. Did you know that there will be M6 CSL?

Yes I new about the M6 CSL. But the regular one has a carbon roof already. Thats why I assumed that all versions of the M3 would have the carbon roof too.

So what about th trannies and the rear diffuser I asked about. Any more info on that?

No more info, BMW is very tight lipped. Regular may still get carbon roof if they change their mind.

I bet they will all have carbo roof. It will probably be more of a pain in the ass for them to do steel and carbon roofs.

So what tranny is the M3 getting than?

No not lately. I drove a friends SMG M5 and liked it. How bad can it be

I guess I will be getting hte 6speed manual since I do not like the DSG.

So whats your opinion of the new M3

how bad can it be?? 6 M5's at my local dealer bought back for SMG issues.. can't get into reverse, delayed clutch engagement.. reliability is horrid. I still think the 335i is a better alternative as a beater.. as a weekend car.. thumbs down..

I actually am getting a 335 6 speed coupe. I just ordered it. But im still getting the M3.

Do you really not like the new M3? What tranny do you think it will have and are the M5/6s gonna stop using SMG?

Well, my '04 M3 with SMG II is doing well at 55K miles. No problem like your M3, but then mine is a '04.

No problem with the SMG or the motor.

Glad you are back in the 3-series!!

BMW's soul is truly the 3-series!!

So, did you "tune-up" your turbos?

yup... it's chipped. nothing wrong with my M3.. it's the M5's that was a POS. Even the regional rep from BMW after the fact admitted that across the nation, it's pretty evident SMGIII was not ready for primetime. That's all he ever deals with besides the gamut of 7 series electrical gremlin issues also.
