You may be in for a long wait. I don't have the import numbers but that has to be a very low count configuration. I saw one, pretty well worn, at a BMW meet a while back. Not something I seen very often. Coupe 5-speed is much more common (and they are not that common).

Lol, typical Brat reply. And all his nuttsuckers joining in, because all they can do is parrot along.

CBlock, what I said still counts. Nothing Brat can change about.

Careful there, don’t try to go against Brat, or you’ll be in for a treat...

I do wonder if any SMG1 ever made it into the states. If so, must be a really small number. Let alone people, let alone forum members, having ever driven one, for an extended amount of time. You don’t just get in and know to work (with) it.

Yet when SMG1 is mentioned, instantly ‘all’ members here have driven one, driven it intensively and long enough to form an opinion, only then having valid reasons to hate it. La La Land does exist.

And then think I care because saying so will make me like mine less. Oh man
do I hate my car or what?

Having an opinion about something not even been in close proximity of, that is either just hilariously hilarious or just plain sad. I’m still on the fence.

I might sign up at the Mustang forum and bash the hell out of the cars there.
Having never driven one, according to member’s law here, I’d surely have to be the expert to do so

I don’t mind waiting for the ‘right’ one - looking to replace the same model my parents bought when I was really getting into cars - it has become somewhat of a unicorn for me. At the time I didn’t fully appreciate or I would have begged to keep it for myself before they moved on to subsequent M5s.

I’ve looked over a few examples recently but all have been too thrashed to use as a foundation.

Regarding transmission conversation - my DD is an auto and exactly what I want when encountering any LA traffic - but something must be said for the primal, nostalgic, visceral, controlling, connected appreciation one gets when manually manipulating the gears.

I’d even argue there certainly is still a viable place for non-synchro trannies - what better ballet of feet and hand?

That’s why SMG is perfect. It’s a manual transmission, just no clutch pedal to push (it’s identical to the clutchpedal operated 6-speed) giving the option for an auto mode (well three modes) very handy in traffic jams. And in manual mode, you’re in full control. Only using the right foot for clutch control.

It also gives you less wear on the synchro’s and it’s impossible to moneyshift.

Lol yeah, SMG really sucks.

What is your problem today? No one said anything about SMGI and if anyone worth a damn did, it isn’t without knowing the strengths and faults.

Well the butthurt seems to make the doll pretty unnecessary.
