I currently own a 1994 Toyota Supra TT with about 500HP. I been thinking of selling it and getting me an 2002 M3 coupe with the SMG trans. and I had some question that I wanted to ask the experts here...

I have never owned a German car, I always had a Toyota or Lexus so anything that you guys can tell me or warn me it would be very appreciated.

1) How good and reliable is the SMG trans.? I ask b/c Im in a wheelchair and I can not drive a 6-speed, so the SMG is my only option.

2) Do this cars have any weakness..? or tipical problem that I should look out for?

3) How is the maintance of this car? would it kill your wallet?

4) What would you say is a good price for a completely stock 2002 M3 coupe with the SMG.?

And please feel free to tell me anything else that you guys think that I should know.
