  1. SMG Shift Logic Question

    E63/E64 M6 Discussion
    Hello fellow M5 and 6'ers. I've had my 2007 Convertible M6 for over a year now (54K miles) and I f'ing love it. I feel soooo good every time I close that door and fire her up. I digress.... When I brake to corner (I'm alway in manual mode) the SMG seems to want to shift to 3rd every time. I...

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
