Tell me how you intend to measure this, then I'll tell what I'll wager. Or how about this: if it can proven that M-DCT always results in deceleration during shifting, then I will get a 6MT, otherwise I will get a DCT M3?

If I am right, there will be a sharp spike down between gear shifts. If you (and Swamp2) are right, the G curve will just decrease over time smoothly (as you run through the gears) and the G you would feel decreases as torque to the wheels decreases.

Care to wager then?
