Looks like the USA is Skipping SMG ( which isnt very nice in non M cars) and waiting for thr new dual-clutch ZSG gearbox ( similar to Audi's DSG gearbox ) that is supposed to come out with the 335i

I am glad that I didn't wait for the smg. DSG is really amazing...I testdrove an Audi A3 with DSG transmission. The car upshifts and downshifts in just a blink second. Also, the gear changing is so smooth and fast. Let's hope that BMW will offer the similar one in the future.

Manual tranny's are a minority, SMG would just be a small fraction of those cars. I bet they hardly sell any SMG's, especially the lesser model which is different to the tranny on the M3.
