Lol no definitely not. Referring to the roughness of it. It always feels like its botching the shift.

If it has cloth manual seats and no moon roof then that's one of the most sought after combinations ever produced. That's the way that the m3 should have come, a real drivers car.

gotcha. interesting about the shift feel. i have never had a problem with it in the various shift programs. then again, smgII was revised over the MYs of the e46. i drove some early MYs w/ smg and it was so much rougher. it could have to do w/ maintenance, upkeep, etc. as well as lack of periodic resets, which i was unaware of at the time of driving them. i have an 06.

true.

but you can always fix the moon roof issue. and if it comes w/ heavy electric seats, that can be more easily fixed.

there are very few w/ the combo of cloth, manual seats and no moon roof.

i opened my moonroof, i think, 2-3 times before it was deleted. the full electric, nappa seats found a good, new home....

Yea this was an 02. Supposedly meticulously maintained, but you know how that line goes. I don't think there was anything wrong with it, it was just an early SMG, and by that i mean rough. Seriously rough.

The F1 race was better.

I didn't realize how many races are in a F1 season.

Only if you ship them to my house.

I'm going with Akebono Euro Ceramic pads.

Should I put drilled rotors on the 328?
