    I'm having a debate with my friend and he said that the first two years for the E46 M3, BMW offered an auto. I said that when they first came out, they only offered it in the 6-speed and then later on, the SMG. Who is right? :dunno:

    no auto form out there. SMG is the closest thing to automatic

    No ///M car ever had an automatic transmission.

    It goes against the entire foundation of what an ///M car should be.

    Kill your friend. He's a fucking idiot. Next thing you know, he'll say that the McLaren F1 was longer that the current 3er at the time.

    It had the M badge and therefore disproves that all M cars are manual or SMG...what's so hard to understand. We don't give a fuck if you don't think it should be an M car. BMW said it was an M car and that's that.

    Thank you.

    This thread is people who are wanna-be Bimmerphiles, but couldn't tell you why the 328 is so kick ass.
