I'm holding out for an M3 Touring with SMG. That's a grocery getter from hell.
Ever since i first heard of the SMG system, i didn't really warm up to it at all. The reason i prefer Manual is not that i can select the gears, although that is a plus, but rather that i can use the clutch to modulate just how much power reaches the pavement. For example, i can control wheelspin without DSC/ASC+T with just my left foot "feeling" the feedback through the pedal. With SMG, i would be stomping on the dead pedal! I know some will like it, but that's just my $.02
