DCT substantially delayed for sedan

I placed my order for a sedan a couple days ago. Selecting DCT dropped me from delivery in March to "sometime in late June/ early July." I know someone mentioned this earlier, just some more confirmation.

I for one will look at the C63, and I might pull the trigger on it rather than wait. I also will add - have you seen the jaguar XF, I think that thing is beautiful, especially when the "R" gets out.

Off topic I know, but.. I have a 335, which is amazing. Dinan will be coming out with a stage II chip that will deliver "440" hp per my dealer. That will make the 335 insane, because stock it is super.

For what it is worth:
E90 M3
Silverstone II
Fox Red, anthracite wood
DCT
Tech package (hate i-drive and hump, but plan on getting to the track)
18" wheels
Premium package
Moonroof (honestly a little pissed that this is an "option" at this price)
Premium sound, HD radio, Ipod
I will add aftermarket window tint and paint protection at delivery

It's not "substantially delayed" since that was the original availability date to begin with.
So I'm not sure what your post is about with the 335 and C63 talk.

Just go with the manual if you don't want to wait. Don't need no girly transmission!

pure speculation here... but maybe he meant that Dinan was working on a chip for the M3 that would bump from 414->440... seems a little more reasonable of a gain (26hp versus 140hp on the N54...)

Again... purely speculation.... I have NO evidence to back that up.
