Hmmm . . . 8 speed DSG?

In support of that, if BMW is going through the trouble of designing a DSG type gearbox for a high revving V8, why wouldn't they try for an 8 speed?

Plus they need to match the Lexus 8-speed auto in the IS-F

If it is 8 speeds DSG I will wait for it over the 6-speed manual. It will have a significant performance advantage just because of gearing.
