DCT is $6.2K more than 6MT?

Hi guys,

Dealer had 1 (one) 2008 DCT on the lot and many 6MTs. He was willing to sell the DCT at $1K below MSRP but will take $500 over invoice for the 6MT which is $4.5K below MSRP. Considering the cost of DCT is $2.7K, the net difference between the two cars is $6.2K!

I wanted a DCT but the price difference with the 6MT is astounding. I am thinking of grabbing one of his 6MTs today and live with the "shifting-in-traffic" problem we all face here in LA.

BTW, I test drove the ISF and the 63 and agree with most here that the M3 is the better driver's car.

Bingo
My local dealer has 5 6MT's in stock and only 1 DCT that just came in and was ordered for a customer....so that makes a grand total of 2 DCT's they have allocated and all three were customer orders (but mine was 1st)

Unless you have a cool wife (or my case Fiance) who knows how to drive a 6MT and can also run an SCCA course with the best of them..

Just test drive both. Buy what you want and not what is cheaper.

Well I just did the deal on an E90 6MT 19's tech/prem and took it home this afternoon.

On the way home I noticed that doing 2nd to 3rd gear shifts while flooring it on 3rd is absolutely INSANE both in torque and in sound coming from the baby V8. (Of course I had to lift off the gas at 5000 RPM cause the car is brand new.)

I can't wait for the odometer to turn 1200 miles. I am now officially on-board
