Yep, but that could just as easily be 0.155 rounded, who knows? They probably aren't speed shifting the 6MT either. Without knowledge of the test and granularity of the time measured, we have no idea. Maybe they do have a good 6MT driver who nailed the launch and beat the DCT to the 60' time but then shifted like "BMW would expect" a typical driver to shift. We have no clue.
