jack smith: I understand this has a clutch and gears,not a torque converter and valve body, but it (to me) is, for all intents and purposes, a glorified automatic; someone tell me how this is different from any other automatic with paddles.
Rick Havok: No, it's a manual gearbox with semi and fully automated modality. An automatic is entirely different. This has a clutch and gears,not a torque converter and valve body. The magic is in the transmission itself, not the paddles on the wheel.
iputtheinternetonmyback: ...did you try turning it on & off?
John Chisholm: My M3 is exactly the same as this & 2 days ago I overtook a truck & the car over revved & then my gears got all messed up & now the car won's start. And I have no idea why! :-(
