Options on M3

well i need sum help deciding on options, i got the sunroof and i think thats worth i, but what im scared abuot is when i read the thread about the smg2 and weather or not it is actually worth the 2.4g's. i think its really cool that u can shift like that but idno at the same time im afraid because people say there are lots of problems with them. should i stick with good ol' stick or should i go for the technologically advanced smg?

lil background on hwo i drive so it can assist u:

im a student, so when i do get adreniline rushs i punch it to the floor, i also drive very conservative the other 50% of the time - depends on my mood. so my driving style radically changes around a lot. i also love to eat food in the car for sum weird reason, if i get stick im worried that i wont be able to really dirve and eat due to the amount of conectration needed in driving stick.hmmm hoepfuly that gave u a lil incite on my driving stuff so it may help ur deceesion

thanks for the opinions guys ill really need em

moonroof, heated seats, and harmon kardon (unless you plan on putting in some serious ICE but you said your a student, so am i, and the $$ can be a little tight). stick with stick ( i didnt mean to do that). its just more fun, if you are going to track your car a lot (like more than 50% of your driving time is spent on the track) then i'd say get the SMG but if i was getting a m3, i would get it in manual, its just more fuc to me. i don't feel like im driving if i am just standing on the gas pedal. good luck with the choice, let us know how it turns out.

ps- hopefully stick will break you of that eating in the car thing, i will not allow you to eat in an M3, its just not right

Just get stick, you really dont think about it at all once you are used to it.
