13 DCT. Love it and not looking back on MT. Especially enjoy the rev match downshifts!

Find a new dealer. In SoCal there should be quite a few choose from.

I think the dct is great, but I'm not religious about it. I didn't order my car, and if the dealership had a manual that day I would have probably bought it also the dct is a good match for the m3 though.

Been a die-hard 6sp fan my entire life and was REALLY on the fence about going to DCT...

One week owner of 2009 e92 DCT and have already become a believer. The performance advantage is uuuuuuuuundeniable! IN LOVE !!!!

Checking in with a 2013 DCT. Took delivery at the Performance Center in Oct. and drove home about 900 miles. What a great way to break her in.

So so soooo sold on DCT. 30 years of MT to throw out the window (minus the 2 year stint on black c63).
