DCT Prices

Most are selling AT MSRP. My buddies at Steve Thomas BMW and Rusnak BMW say they don't charge over invoice because they know if they ding someone like that, it's likely that will be the only car they will ever sell them. New Century BMW charges charges $5,000 over MSRP if the car is sitting on the lot vs. ordering, but that isn't an issue, because seldom are there any DCT cars sitting. Crevier had 2, but they ordered them with moonroofs (Do'H!), so that was a deal breaker for me, so I'm still waiting for the one I ordered. Hopefully it will be on the boat next week. It's a long transportation wait for those of us on the West Coast...Across the Atlantic > Thru the Caribbean > Thru the Panama Canal > Up the west coast of Mexico > To Port Hueneme, CA (about 10 miles from us). Apparently, that process still takes 4-5 weeks.

That's harsh and overdone.

Kind of an off the wall question.

How many SMG E46 M3's vs. manual E46 M3's were ordered?

It seems like the majority in the used car market are SMG's.

I heard (so no official data) that it was evenly split between 6MT and SMG2.

Mines on the water!!

Mine is officially on the way. I found out it is on the cargo ship named Grand Venus and is due to land in Port Hueneme, CA on 7/26. I should have it around 8/1.

But...I'm not excited or anything.

Add my new “teaching aid” to the club. Purchased off the lot at Irvine BMW last week, traded my E36 M3 for a 2008 E92 M3, M-DCT, Silverstone II w/Fox Red and Carbon leather, Carbon Fiber Roof, 19” wheels, Technology Pkg., Premium Pkg., Enhanced Audio, Heated Seats, PDC, USB adapter.

Ali Shayegan –Client Advisor was very helpful. I stopped in to purchase a lower inner fender panel for my wife’s 525iT and to show her the M3 colors. We’re looking at colors with Ali and are shown an E92 M-DCT in Silverstone II…….well not “my planned” color choice, but my wife liked the color combo. Ali offers a test drive (way to get me hooked), I teach Automotive Power Train and Automatic Transmissions, am I interested…. After my training lesson as a passenger in Swamps car I had been dreaming of working the paddles myself.

After the test drive my wife encourages me to purchase something different than my old color combo (Arvus Blue w/grey interior). She was right I love my new car!!! …….and my wife
