you can believe that if you like

the smg is terrible compared to the dct.

perhaps for nostalgic or other reasons you prefer it, but the vast majority do not. the dct is faster, smoother, more reliable (so far, only 4.5 years old) and more responsive.

anyway, 1 series ftw, most fun you can have for a reasonable price in a BMW
