I think you will be hard pressed to find anyone who has owned a well maintained M3 SMG to say a bad word about them.

Just make sure all the maintenance has been done as it can be expensive to to play catch up on brakes, discs and having the valves shimmed.
Good luck with your purchase
I agree. I was an SMG hater, then i got one and learnt how to drive it and i love it - i don't think i'll own another manual if there is a DCT option available in the car i am looking at.

The only time SMG is balls is when you are trying to do a quick 3 point turn. You have to be patient whilst going from reverse to 1st etc.
