I believe it's driver not smg vs stick.
Anyone who wants to play pm me. I'll set it all up, and I will make sure it's all on video.
As a person who even has a Lamborghini Gallardo in manual which is extremely rare, I have to disagree with you. You couldn't shift as fast as an SMG if your life depended on it.

The S85 V10 with the SMG is what made this car what it is. I wonder how long it's going to take before someone stuffs in a GM LS motor in a E60 M5 to make it more reliable in their eyes.

I have begun ordering parts to finally go through with this on my 2007. This is my personal list I have compiled based on new parts, just to get an idea of all the parts related to option 2MA. Don't let the prices listed turn you off to this project; this is a worst case scenario cost situation above. I found a LOT of the stuff used and will only be using new parts where it matters. My final cost for parts alone is just under $2,800 including the trans, new flywheel, clutch kit, pedal assy, and driveshaft.

In addition to parts, the DME will need flashed to the manual software and there are 4 pinning changes that need to be made for the reverse switch, neutral position sensor, yaw rate sensor, and the fluid sensors on the 6MT. Pins need to be moved from the SMG ECU to the DME as the SMG ECU will no longer be there. I'll post details as I get into the conversion after the holiday.

Also just found out that the rear subframe is somehow different in the 6MT cars as well as the throttle pedal. Im hoping the only difference with the throttle pedal is the kick down switch.
