If you’ve been searching for a truly high performance rear muffler for your M3, look no further. Dinan’s unique muffler design effectively reduces back-pressure for improved flow, resulting in measurable power gains. Manufactured from 304 stainless steel inside and out for superior resistance to corrosion as well as a significant reduction of weight. And from those aggressive looking ceramic-coated tips flows an exhaust note that will be music to the driving enthusiast’s ears.
The Dinan exhaust delivers exactly what the M3 owner demands in a performance muffler; increased power, reduced weight, a look that means business and the throaty exhaust note you’d expect from an M3. And to ensure that the power gains are optimized, fully matched Stage 2 Performance Engine Software brings the engine management system up to speed, making sure that the M3 is getting just the right amount of fuel and ignition timing right up to the revised 8150 rpm rev-limit.

Geez, all the hate-on for SMG. Yes. SMG Shifts are rough and jerky.. the first week or two you drive it. Then you realize that if you just let off the gas for a millisecond after the shift, this is no longer the problem, even with sport mode turned on and S5/6 mode on the shifter. If you have it lower then 1->2 is a little rough, but beyond this, the lower shift modes are pretty timid.
But, as I said before, not a problem if you ease off the gas for a millisecond.
Don't get an SMG if you enjoy driving stick and could not give it up for anything. There have been many posts about the SMG versus manual. Best bet is to test drive both.
Note, that if you have to use a cellphone or are having your morning coffee while commuting, then SMG in the auto mode is pretty darn convenient. But, this does not detract from the fun factor in manual modes.
But, to each their own I guess.
