I've never driven a manual that requires so much force to shift every time my hand comes off when I go into 2nd gear.
my RX8 on the other hand is absolutely peach to shift. that well oiled sucking in feel. perfectly weighted and clear.
planned on staying clear of this thread but really

are you talking about the transmission or your mangina at the beach?

bmw didn't make a version of the M3 for little girls. (closest would be the SMG) j/k

M3 shifts like just about every other bmw i've owned.

now sorry for distraction, please go on enjoying your Automatic Owners thread
