Disappointing for sure

Agree strongly that generally:
-Dealers do not know sh%^
-Dealers will lie to get their allocations of 6MT cars sold

Oh well. If it is true not the end of the world. It will be hard seeing folks cruising around here in the US while I sit and wait. But I am sold on M-DCT so I'll just keep waiting and waiting. Heck we have to wait so long after folks in Europe get 1st deliveries maybe it won't seem like too much longer.

South: What is your source of confirmation of this rumor?

All this being said I do think BMW will push as hard and fast as possible to get this transmission tested, integrated and productized. They want the revenue from what will be a fairly pricey option and they really need the automatic mode in the DCT for the lazy folks and folks buying for status only.

(That wasn't that bad was it south?)
