    I bought my e46 m3 SMG about 6 months ago and it's been stood since, on it's first drive out the SMG cog light came on but the car still drove as normal. 1 hours rest and the cog light had gone and car performed as normal in all gears with no slipping etc or hesitation. Previous owner changed the pump for a new one and did the salmon relay too.
    Third of driving it now and tried to be more spirited with the car and cant seem to get any shift lights coming on. They definitely work at start up and all lights go out in sequence but I planted it in manual and didn't get any lights coming up.

    Was just wondering if anyone can shed any light on this.

    Thanks

    Are you taking it round to the limiter? The shift lights come on very high in the rev range.

    Yeah ended up finding out that I wasn't driving it hard enough for some reason I thought they came on gradually.

    Thanks for the reply
