for example..

instead of

1 3 5 7
2 4 6

it would have been something like

3 2 7 4
6 5 1

that's what he's talking about.


since they couldnt pull it off for a 7 speed, they resorted to the 6 mt.
look dickhead, I know that the SMG is a true sequential gearbox that would not transfer to a regular H-gate. A manual M5 would have to have a conventional gearbox. The guy I quoted simply said that it would be impossible to have a 7 speed manual gearbox. Don't be such an asshole.

who's the ******* calling me a dickhead? what is your mental age? either you are a child proud of all 11 of your modifications, or someone way too old to be resorting to petulant name-calling because you can't get your facts straight or read clearly. they sure raise them sensitive in kentucky don't they?

Actually, the original poster you quoted did not say it was impossible, go back and read, he clearly stated it was not possible because the "location of the gears would be jumbled"


just because your post sounded stupid and you got checked on it doesn't mean you have to start crying and calling names.

Anyways... It is not impossible to do a 7 speed manual if you start from scratch. They can't use the SMG box, because it wasn't designed to be one. I doubt Getrag and Sachs even would want to make a 7-spd manual. ZF could do it, and are probably doing it for BMW.
