The sour aftertaste of the SMG kept many away from the DCT at the beginning, I think. Once it proved robust (and fantastic), sales followed.
I'll always have at least one true manual in the stable, get too much enjoyment from it, but I look forward to owning a car with one of these great new dual-clutch systems (DCT, PDK, DSG) before long.
Actually i was thinking the REAL enthusiasts already bought their M3 by the time LCI rolled around so that's why there were a lot less 6MT sales
SAVE THE STICK!
