DCT purchasing scenarios

This is looking like a likely scenario. I get the feeling DCT cars will not be available until early summer--pure speculation based on the fact that we still have not heard a thing about it from BMW or seen spy pics of a car with a DCT lever. If DCT=>early summer, then I might wait for 2-3 more months and buy a 2009 model (I think, generally speaking, one can order next year's model in late August). If they can deliver DCT in Spring, and if #4 spot on the list lets me buy one then, I'll go for it.
