I am about to order and New 2005 330i Convertible. I'm thinking of the SMG trans. Does anyone have one and what do you think of it??
A lot of mixed opinions on the SMG - many like it, many don't. If you really like the feel of 3 pedals found in a standard manual transmission car, you'll be disappointed.
If your going to drop that much $ on a new car, I would spend some time behind the wheel of a car w/ each - you don't want to pick the wrong tranny and regret it later. I've read on numerous occasions in BMW forums where people regret getting SMG, and probably some the other way around too.
Keep in mind the SMG in the 330 is not the same SMG version found in the M3, so if you test drive one of each, make sure your testing out a standard 3 series w/ SMG.
