Why do you say that?
I had an SMG M3 and I loved every minute of it. In s5 it was lighting quick on the changes, in s6 with traction off it was ferocious, I loved the way it banged (the sound and physical jolt) on each gear change.
Amazing car, you can get manual or auto in anything, and the new DCT type boxes are so smooth you feel like you're in an auto - get an SMG for a while just for the change and to see the look on passengers faces the first time they feel an s6 change up at 8k revs
