Does it bother anyone else that the SMG II allows a driver to accelerate and shift faster than a true enthusiast (stick-shift driver)?

My point is basically that by learning and mastering a stick-shift, the driver would reap the rewards (faster shifting/acceleration/etc). However, with the SMG II, there are nothing but disadvantages to driving a stick-shift.

The person who made that statement was proven to be incorrect.

not really. I mean, if an auto can outshine manual, then Im all for it. You make it sound like its going on everycar made by every car company. Its a performance tranny for performance BMWs. I see nothing wrong with it.

After having driven both a stick and an SMG. For street use the SMG is awesome. I have autoX'd it and it is fine. For pure racing on a track I would still stay with the stick. There are things you can do with the stick that you can't with an SMG like feathering the clutch and double clutching. Just my 2 cents.

doesnt bother me, my favorite thing about a stick is bein able to play with the clutch. One of my friends has SMG in her new M3, she let me drive it, and i would definitly prefer a stick, even though the smg maybe faster, still not near as fun.

what is double clutching?
pushing the clutch in, bringing the selector lever to neutral, release the clutch, blip the throttle to rev match for next gear, push in the clutch, select gear, release clutch
