Thanks Sam, I too wished when I had the two M3's with MT that I should have gotten the M-DCT since after all I knew what it would be like from my original e46 (similar anyway) also from my Z4 35i that I had before the first e92 in AW. I guess I just was to selfish and should have gotten the M-DCT in the first place.

Thank you ... did you make it back safe and sound to Fort Mac? after having your clear bra installed?

Its amazing how someone's opinion changes AFTER they get one.......:lol
I don't think there is a person alive (perhaps some of the top class F1 drivers then they carry that longer stick) that can be faster and more precise then the M-DCT. As for changing mind ... yes I am one of them too slap me you can I do deserve it

I can attest to that having seen you on the track last year ... I recall that Porsche overtaking you and the fellow standing besides me said to me "did you just see the Porsche overtaking that M3 wow he made him mad bet in less then one lap the M3 will overtake the Porsche, that fellow in the M3 is a great driver"

I think you overtook him 2 laps later always on his tail I bet you recall that very day.

Cheers, Rolf

PS. Now Fellows let's not fight over the transmission besides they are both great
Cheers, Rolf-Dieter

Life will take us to some interesting places, fortunately The ///M3 will too with a many of us know this very well, now my C6.3 AMG with 487 HP does it too
