So not one DCT owner actually uses the "selector" to manually select the DCT gear they want...Really? I know I can't call it a "shifter" because the M/T guy's get really upset. Ride with a DCT owner who likes to drive some time. I used the D-mode coming home from the dealership, never used it again. Personally, I don't care what transmission you choose, I thnik we can agree that the M is a great car.

No what he's saying is most people use the paddles - I used the gear selector a bit in my 135i but i felt like a poser.

Bottom line is, real men use stick.

(Sorry, had to do it. )
