Test drove a DCT, DFW

So I just got to test drive a white e90 with DCT at Autobahn this last weekend. Had 17 miles on the clock when I hopped in.

Absolutely phenomenal! Just too bad it wasn't a demo car that had been broken in. I only ever hit like 5k RPM.

If anyone in the area wants to test drive a DCT though, I'd suggest going there and trying your smoothest line to get into the seat. (I don't think it was suppost to be test driven is why)

I've been looking for a DCT equipped car to test drive in the DFW area, but I would need to be sure I would be allowed to drive one before I made the 2.5 hour drive. Thanks for the info.

Yes, I am going to buy as soon as I can decide between DCT or manual. I've already driven the manual, just need to try DCT.
