BMW M3 - E92 -56k? idk

No Ranger, but I took these today in my spare time...love this car.. *not mine! lol, i wish*

It's a SMG car which kinda sucks, but Burnout and 'Race' mode are a blast to mess with

E92 . . . *drool*, I drove an E60 M5 in New Zealand with the 6-spd, needless to say I just about ruined the 16-way seats.

How are the looks you get in that beast? Got any interior pics?

I LOVE it!

Good lord, I wish it was mine! I just get to work on the things unfortuneately, cant have a $70k M3 yet. Well the SMG is actually an amazing transmission, shifts remarkably fast...but just out of personal preference, I prefer a manual! So the smg "sucks", but it doesn't. lol




Interior for whom requested..

Oh I had a brain fart, I was thinking AMG not SMG lol. Yeah a car like that I'd want a manual in as well.

it's not SMG, it's a DKG, aka Dual-clutch.

The DKG system is SOO much better than their SMG (which does truly, truly SUCK). Having driven both the manual and DKG M-cars, I have to say that DKG is the way to go. It's fast-shifting (way faster than any manual shifting) and it'll make the car chirp in 2nd AND 3rd

Your right, it's a DKG..but out of habit I tend to run the two into "SMG". More people tend to know what that is over DKG.

We have an E46 M3, SMG...thing is a turd when it comes to shifting. God help you if you get the thing bucking in first.

I'm here in Florida at the BMW S.T.E.P facility, 27 week program paid for by my dealer. So I will be moving back to Las Vegas, NV to work at my dealer.

Man I love those cars, esp with the colored interiors. The dual clutch manual/auto is really quick. Audi/VW has had the DSG for a while now, if I drove one of those before I bought my car I would have waited, tiptronic is a slug compared to DSG. It is truely an automated manual, it takes off like a manual and everything, but shifts quicker.
