From Motor Trend website

2001 BMW M3: Power will come from a 3.4-liter/343-horse inline six, both
in Europe and in the United States. A six-speed transmission and a
sequential shifter with steering-wheel mounted controls will be
available.

Of course, we already know the part about 3.4 liters is wrong, so I wouldn't put much stock in the rest of it. I sometimes wonder how many of the "authoritative" sources quoted here use this very board as their own source of information. I never heard anything about SMG with paddle shifters until loki's spy pictures came out.
