First E90 M3 DCT Here?

Dealer just informed me that the car is here!!! Too bad my work schedule prevents me from picking it up for the next few days.

Has anyone gotten their E90 DCT yet (NA Only)? Mine went into production on 5/28.

I think you're first, I've got 2 more weeks (arrives in 7 days and 7 day performance delivery backlog)

Damn east coasters! lol Well, congrats nonetheless!

Mine is not due to hit the US (west coast) until 7/13. I aint picking it up until 7/28 as I will be out of town. I was thinking I may wait until August 1 to pick it up so I get an extra month worth of registration...I dunno.

Just can't forget to pack the V1.

First in the US, but not first in the forum. A European member posted pics of his a week or two ago.

just picked up the car and drove 65 miles back home, taking it extremely easy (gearbox at D1, no higher than 3500rpm, more or less only a few over speed limit, etc)

oh my god the car is LOUD! steering is extremely precise, and the whole package is much tighter than my old regular E90. DCT takes a little time to get used to, but should be OK after a day or two. even at extremely relaxed setting i can tell the 400 horses under the hood are just yearning to come out.

At least it was smart enough to tell you before you spent an hour taking pictures and trying to find out where the hell they went.
