You are right, I never noticed that the location was Bavaria so it appears mine is the first picture of a North American car with M-DCT. It is a BMW Canada car. Good job I went and got a picture as soon as I heard it was there because BMW Canada cars can be there one minute & gone the next. I thought this thread was for a car at a US dealer. I do not want to start a new thread as there was quite a fuss when I posted a duplicate thread previously.

Dude, don't sweat the dupe thing - you have new info. Just look at all the delivery pic threads around - they are all dupes by that logic.

Post a new thread, title it appropriately.

Good Job!

Very nice car!!! Your exterior is the same as the one I hope to be driving in a week. Black is such the badass color. Bad as hell when viewed, bad to take care of!

anyone else disappointed they didnt make a special housing for the shifter?

the shifter doesn't move around much, why does the boot need to be so large

I was thinking the same, a small shifter in the vast amount of black looks very plain. even different trim would set it apart

I like the round metallic surrounding of the SMG shifters.

I'm actually glad it looks like a manual tranny boot. My dads SMG E46 has a chrome ring around it, which is no good for me. But then again, I like a business-like interior which is why I have a black interior with carbon.

I love the way they didn't highlight the DCT visually. I'd rather let the performance speak for itself.

Aftermarket color-matched Novillo boot will likely be popular.
