In Reply to: It has been reported some Euro M3 owners posted by get 5-speed as upgrade. EOM on February 01, 2001 at 15:22:03:

The 5-speed is a stronger gearbox anyway.

So BMW put a weaker gearbox in the euro car that has 80 more horsepower?
Doubt it!
I believe the 6 speed has the same 1-5 ratios as the 5 speed, just an added gear, overdrive 6th.
I could be wrong...(but don't think so)
