It's a 7 speed.

2. Having the M-DCT option and using launch control, with the DSC off, wont the car launch perfectly every time without the need of any m-drive/dtc type of traction setting etc ?
With the new DCT you can adjust the launch rpm within a specific range on the cruise control lever. This way you're able to accomodate to different conditions.

3. Was not a 6spd manual version of the E60 M5 much slower than its 7 speed SMG III counterpart?
Yes, it was.

4. Is the 6spd manual box on the E9x M3 not from the E46 M3?
No, different suppliers. The E46 M3's box is made by Getrag, the E9x M3's by ZF.


Best regards, south
