This is reason enough to doubt the rest of the article. See also: http://www.dctfacts.com/archive/2009...trags-dct.aspx

I don't know about the m5 but I suspect getrag provides that too.
I believe that Getrag does supply the BMW DCT but ZF also manufacturers DCT transmissions and is the supplier of the Porsche PDK. Until I read the article I was not aware the the X6M did not come with a DCT.
