Is M-DCT able to hold gears?


I was wondering if DCT is able to hold gears upon reaching redline (bounce off rev limiter if it has to), unlike the Audi/VW DSG which automatically shifts up gears. Thanks

I don't know if it is the same for m3's
but in the 335i if you hold onto the shifter
it will not shift out of the gear no matter how slow/fast you're moving
