This one is near and dear to our hearts. Why you ask? Because at throtl we are diehard gearheads and love our manuals! But, there is much debate inside The HuntQuarters as to what is a better transmission...the manual, or the SMG in the beastly V10 M5. Sure, we are all diehard manual transmission fans, but technology enhancements happen for a reason. Obviously, the SMG transmission, (Sequential Manual Gearbox) is much more primitive than the modern day Dual Clutch transmissions, like DCT, or Porsche's PDK, but this video shows that even this old school SMG puts a good lead on a traditional manual transmission.
Even though the Manual gets tromped on, our boy Rick sure would've loved to get his hands on an M5 with the manual. Happy Motoring!
