Wow congratulations. I can totally feel and share your excitement. It is fantastic to see this baby with M-DKG in the flesh. It has almost seemed like a ghost thus far. This is by far the biggest innovation and most important option on the car (MHO). If your car gets released you will beat the press to testing. What will be really unfortunate is that darn break in procedure. I think I would drive her 18 hours a day until broken in so I could experience the LC and 1->2 and 2->3 shifts in S6 at WOT!

Like everyone else I'm eagerly anticipating you actually taking delivery of it and giving us a review. Just think, yours could be the first review in the world on it. lol

I was about to ask why a Euro car had bumper reflectors.
Now i understand why.

We need a review asap.

Dude..I have no idea how to change a pic and look like this. IT IS 100% PURE. If I knew how too, my photoshop heavily muscle-tanned body would be all over every SWF/SMF website.

TERRIBLE, I figured this would happen. They can not afford to have a regular "plebe" getting a scoop ahead of all the journalists. I feel for you man. Maybe you can just sneak in a test drive with the dealer present? I imagine the German dealers will stick to official rules from HQ more strictly than US dealers.

Contacted dealer that first M-DCT had arrived at a dealer in the US. Dealer informed me that BMW Canada had a red coupe out back since Monday with M-DCT but did not let me know as mine is 6MT. It is raining, turning dark & car is locked & only BMW Canada has the keys so the picture thru the window is not the best.

turb934 you should start a new thread.

SMSgt's car is a US spec car, but its not in North America. You've spotted the first one on this side of the pond I believe. Is that a customer car, or BMW CA car of some kind?
