This is terrible news, but i'm stuck now. If i changed to MT i would still have a wait.
From all that I have read it certainly sounds like the M3 will debut in the USA in Spring and M-DCT is supposed to be standard for the US market with 6MT "for the purists" as a no cost option.... Use logic that is why USA is only getting them next year...... I mean who puts USA last!!!!!!!! Its because of the way the want it to come out and I seriously doubt that they will make it come out any later to the US market!!! Maybe the rest of us will have to then wait for US market to settle a little before we can get M-DCT option as obviously not enough to go around!? Makes a little sense
