Thanks, alirz. That's what I figured. I'm skeptical of a software fix for a hardware problem. But I am open to being convinced.

On this topic, has anyone with the SMG software compared it to the dual clutch action in the E9x series cars? I'm told it is not possible to make SMG react that fast. Any thoughts? I would be up for...

Right, I basically don't see the reason to drive this car with the top up. They make sedans for that. NEED to hear the exhaust out back.

That said, the thought of modifying this exhaust has me...

I agree with you on the SMG being a no maintenance item after 4 years. Just change the fluids and rock on. But I have only put around 20k on mine in that time. Moving to a coupe, you don't miss...

Wheels look good, especially with the tint. M3's always look funny to me in the snow. I just don't expect to see them in that environment.

Thanks. I don't see mine going anywhere either, but up in value. I think it's the purist expression of BMW M. And I don't think I'm alone.

At 5+ years, you're talking to people whose cars are paid for, fit comfortably in their front pocket in terms of maintenance, and who obviously like the car enough to have gotten there. So for me,...

Let's also keep in mind where the last couple years of the E39 M5s are settling out in price with comparable mileage. At those numbers, $25k for a E46 M3 looks like the deal of the century to a...

You can read on that until your eyes cross around here. At this point in the life cycle, if the clutch hasn't been changed, that's probably it. You can do full and partial SMG resets, change fluid,...

I think you lose the ski pass any way it goes, even with BSW. Check that to be sure though. That is, I don't think going free air to keep the ski pass is an available option.

Right. I just figure when it goes bad, it won't be intermittent. I'm in between services now. But this will be on the list at the next service.
