Is this happening for real now? I know it had been rumored for the coupe and possibly for the sedan LCI also, but I thought it was delayed.

The DCT variant of the 335 is coming to our shores in about 2 weeks time. Don't really know what's the difference though with the M-DCT.

+1 Yeah M before options is the way to go.

Thanks for your advice, I already got my M3.


What I was trying to point out was that making DCT available for the regular 3 series makes the M3 less exclusive. And yes, after power, handling and looks, DCT was one of the reasons for me to get the M.
