Had a perfect nice ///M3 2012 e92 all loaded

Wife said "We should go to only one car!"

after long discussion on this subject she agreed to get another Bimmer once I told her and convinced her (a little strong arming was used I must confess) the ///M3 also comes in automatic

So we changed form a 2012 (with only 2000 KM on the odometer) back to a new e92 2011 all loaded (of course) with DCT.

Three weeks later she changed her mind and told me "I will keep my car, yours' is too noisy for me and shifting is too confusing"

Of course she got no argument from me (internally I smiled and was happy as hell). I must admit after driving two ///M3s' with MT I do prefer the DCT. I say this since shifting the gears was never as smooth as on my original 1987 5 Speed MT on our 535is. Guess I was spoiled way back in 1987

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
