The six-speed transmission in the BMW M3 Coupé.

The BMW M3 Coupé offers ultra-fast, ultra-precise shifts every time. Its six-speed manual gearbox ensures optimum transmission of engine power throughout the rev range, resulting in smooth acceleration on demand. Even downshifts are a pleasure - especially when followed by a bend. A redesigned, more lightweight, ventilated clutch makes for improved heat dissipation.
