On the big if that BMW does offer a DCT and the M-sport pack on the 335i coupes for 2010, I assume the DCT will cost ~ $1,000 more than the current auto (M3 dct is $2900, 6AT is $1325). Plus the M-sport will likely cost a bit more than the the $1600 sport pack and $1195 areo kit (since it has all the m-tech bits such as wheels, steering wheel etc).
If you can't tell by my posts and the cars I am comparing it to... I am not exactly looking for a stripper base car that goes fast. I prefer some amenities too.
Otherwise I would just go with a new $25k 361HP Pontiac G8 or a $32k 420hp Camaro SS.
metallic paint, leather, sport package with 19's, and ipod adapter = $47,975. Every other option is useless and gay. 55k for a 335? what a joke. man the fuck up and just get an m3 at that point.
