M-DCT without Tech Package?

Other than the ability to configure the M-Button to get the best shifting map for the M-DCT quickly, is there any other downside to NOT getting ZTP with M-DCT?

I understand all the disadvantages of not going ZTP, but I'm not quite sure I know them as they pertain to M-DCT.

And I did STFA.

Thanks.

I think you got it covered - you just lose the added convenience of setting the DCT config with the M Button.

You also lose the extra sport throttle and steering.

Right, but he knows that already. He was just talking about ZTP as it applies to M-DCT.

I'm considering M-DCT w/o the double hump and believe that the extra throttle mapping can be rectified by a quicker foot, the sport steering compensated for by better hands.

I wonder how many people are going to get M-DCT w/o ZTP?

I am certainly considering it. The only thing keeping me on the fence is damn CA. I know that not having CA on my car when my wive's does will be a huge excercise in frustration. But $3250 just to get CA? Wow. I am still so sad about BMW's decision not to offer ad-hoc CA only on this car (every other BMW has it available stand-alone).

I wonder if in later model years, they will offer CA as a stand-alone.

Also hoping that a la carte, they will also offer:

-Logic 7
-MDM
-and call me crazy, but I'd like to see Oxford Green make a comeback
