    Indeed, thank you for your answer. So if I want to use this pressure switch, I need to install a motor wiring loon from a manual car.

    What about the DME ? Is it possible to reflash it with the manual software and we are good to go ? Because I don't know if the MSS50 (manual version) and MSS50.1(smg version) use the inputs/outputs pins in the same way ..

    Or the only possibility is to use an other DME from manual car ?

    Thank you for the help !

    My SMG works fine but I would like to go back to the old driving style with a manual gearbox, feel more connected with the car.

    Zonde man! Zottekes amai!



    na seriously, it's a shame. I love shifting as well, but when I got my SMG, I was afraid I would miss clutching. Truth is, I didn't at all. Even surprised me. I think it's a very cool and unique system and when it works, it's a joy to drive.

    I don't know much about converting SMG's and if you can use the DME and stuff.

    Guys, I have a question. My conversion is now complete and am totally in love with my car again, but since the conversion my climate control unit has been playing up. Meaning that sometimes i have control then some times i dont. Could my mechanic have shorted something or pulled on a wire that he shouldn't have?

    Just read this entire thread... wow, great job guys! Before starting a thread in the e46 section I thought I was bump this thread as the answer is most likely quite obvious. I have a 3.2 SMG from my RHD e46 M3 and I was wondering if it is essentially the same gearbox as the e36 SMG 6 speed? The conversion is identical with all the components matching. I am not too concerned about the electrics at this point as the gearbox is going into my other car which isn't a Bimmer.

    Hi, I am currently converting my e36 m3 98 mod. from SMG to manual. But im not sure what to do with the Cruise control? The car was originally delivered with it. But how do i get it to work when i stop using the SMG system?

    There is no set up on the original wiring for the clutch switch..

    Regards
