SMG's are high maintenance tranny's. What you save in clutch wear you more than make up for in everything else that needs to be done. If you get serviced at the dealer, prepare your anus.

Are you saying slave cylinder drive pin, clutch fork etc are unique to the SMG?
I think not.
Ever have an auto slushbox repaired on a BMW? Then again try and find a modern day manual trans in a new BMW. I walked around local dealers lot and found only 1 manual in his whole inventory.
