Good bet on.... You are betting DCT will make it into the E60 M5 / E63 M6. I am betting no.

We don't know the outcome this August but check into the toronto thread when you come up.

Yes, that's the bet, for a Labatt Blue. I know we won't know the outcome in August, but that's ok.

Will you be coming up toward Calabogie at all in July or August? My cottage is on the Toronto side of Calabogie.

No BER, bummer, I wonder why not. ven though it is not many hp I am disappointed by this lack of "Efficient Dynamics". If the car does not have better mpg than the E46 M3, is not lighter, M-DCT does not save GGT I am not so sure where the efficient dynamics are.

Its marketing, just like when he says the suspension is world class or single piston brakes are good. Overall BMW does more good than bad but that doesn't mean the do everything right.

The lack of ARS is still my biggest dissapointment. Absolutly no excuse for that one.
