Big question, are the numbers you sited, based on the DCT or manual?

One of the primary hold backs for me on the E93 is squeaks over time. They are the bane of my existance. With my current Lex, they fix them if ever they appear, never dealt with BMW service before, not sure how tolerant the repairs may be in that regard.

Oh yeah, please post some pics!

BTW, no overlooking that extra weight but clearly they don't have as much fun in the sun!
I live in Manhattan and have a 2007 335i E93. I replaced the RFTs after 2,000 miles. I currently have abouit 15.000 miles on the car. The car is extremely quiet. No squeaks, not rattles, no wind noise, no tire noise. It is quiter than my previous NYC car (Lexus SC300) and as quiet as my wife's 2008 Jaguar XKR.
