I'd strongly bet against a simultaneous US launch of the coupe and convertible. You didn't mention it but it sounds like you would bet for a simultaneous coupe and sedan launch as well? Again, I'd say it will not happen that way. Coupe, followed by sedan, followed by vert - I'd place $ on that.

Tranny: I think there is a chance that the M3 coupe will be available with 6MT and M-DCT from the time of initial US availability, but not a great chance.

So that leads me to the question: Who is your source or if you can not identify them what position do they hold?
