May I suggest something for those undecided out there who are fellow M3 customer regardless of the gearbox choices they make.

There is very little true feed back of the plus points and minus points of the two systems, unlike the manual cars which are readily available to test drive, the DCT cars aren't and most people are choosing blind. While I appreciate what swamp2 has said about it with all his detail we need a lot more of you guys to do like-wise. The more feed-back the easier to make this decision either way.

P.S.
Please don't sugar coat it for the group, remember to minus points as well as the plus ones to give a true reflection of what's it like living with the system.

Thanks for your support.

How could I have missed this club?!! Count me in!! My car is scheduled for production starting next week. I'll hopefully be driving it a month from now -- in all it's M-DCT goodness!

i only have 200 miles on my dct coupe but it is night and day when compared to my previous SMG 05. The shifts in the default setting are almost seamless. i stick in 5 with the power button on (is that S-5?). The lag or extra pedal travel is taking some getting use to. i do hope bmw has a software update for it. as most have said, lag is probably the wrong word, "extra pedal travel" is actually what it is. if not for the "extra pedal travel" i would give the tranny a 10 out of 10 so with the extra pedal i would say 8 out of 10. if you are going from a slow rolling stop it can catch you off guard that is for sure.

Congrats and welcome to the club!

I got a call from my dealer today and my car is already in production. I should have mine within a month as well.

add me to the list, i was going to have a week 8 e90 with 6MT, but postponed it to get a week 22 e90 with M-DCT. It's at the port now, and will be in Charleston the first week in July and processed and queued up for my July 17th performance delivery.
