I've driven it, and an Audi S5 with their version. It's fun but my preference is the manual. Don't get me wrong, it's still a great car!

Yeah that's what I went through. Maranello said they couldn't get me the armrest as it's listed as NLA from BMW

That's funny, Endras said I could get a cinnamon armrest no problem.

Interesting. I inquired for E39 parts, so maybe E46 parts are still available? That would help in my case, as the steering wheel is the same between the two. Armrests are not.

All I can say is that I was told I could get the armrest but not a shift boot, or an e-brake boot. I didn't buy it because it was $450 and I thought I might be able to get someone to colour match and make one for less than that. They also told me that although they had the competition package calipers/rotors listed in the system for $3500 that those couldn't be ordered anymore...so maybe it's just whatever they've got leftover and when it's gone it's gone.

Cinnamon armrest is not an Individual part though. Also some parts get discontinued earlier than the other.

This doesn't sound right. Calipers are the same on all cars, it's just the carrier that it larger.

Ok, you got me...I was drunk when I wrote that and can only assume that caliper/carrier looked like the same word at that point. In any case, they told me the "competition package" brake set could no longer be ordered through a dealer.

That happened to me, as well as having my slave cylinder drive a pin through my clutch fork causing my throwout bearing to be ground into a fine powder.

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.

Ah.. no. . But I think that if I had a manual tranny I would have noticed something much sooner by the feel of the pedal / clutch. When I did notice some odd behavior the diagnostic codes were so vague it could have been anything at all in the transmission but it pointed mainly to the pump. I rolled the dice and replaced it which helped a little. From then on the computer didn't detect any problems yet somehow there was smoke pouring from every orifice of my transmission one day. When I hooked my laptop up there were no codes to be read. Very odd. SMG tranny issues are notoriously hard to diagnose and VERY expensive while doing so. The number of components which can go wrong is higher, and each one is very very expensive.

I don't understand what your second point is.
