I think I am going to have to ask GB, to find out.
Hi Tony...much as it seems improbable to me I think the figures may be correct.
I did a quick look at used cars on Autotrader and there are hardly any MTs for sale after 2009.
I just can't figure why the DCT M3 should be so popular in the UK market where MTs are so entrenched - maybe its some sort of trickle down tech appeal from motorsport?
